Staying in the orbit

leave a comment »

Delivering custom solutions to clients of a product you were previously part of its development can be extraordinarily beneficial.

Most of the time we do not know where we are going with a client and this itself is beautiful. We do not know what problems we are going to solve. We try design a solution for one requirement and we have a huge impact in another requirement. Those are the moments that make working with clients really incredible.

Working with clients is most of the times an interdisciplinary venture. You take the insides of one discipline and combine it with the the product. It is an explosion of possible scenarios that can go from outstanding well to fail miserably.

Focusing on clients’ needs will help you grow. This is a short path to improve a potential innovation. You can easily complete the loop. You will learn to solve problems clients have and even problems they do not know they have.

In my case staying in the orbit of a product I was part of its development was a good career move, but due to circumstances not within my power I will not remain in it. I am very happy that there are managers who evaluate experience as the types of solved problems but not in years of solving problems.
