How many believed Hannibal when he shared his plan to defeat the armies of Rome with elephants that would cross the alps? Sometimes, product management is exactly like that. My name is Albert Lee Nasser and I enjoy discussing (or arguing depending on your particular inclination) Black-Scholes foolishness, Black Swan brilliance, the tragedy of Queen Victoria¹s relentless, oppressive influence at Home Depot, absolutely anything, really, other than myself. With inexpressible joy, however, I will gleefully confront you with the unassailable truth behind my cherished value proposition which is at the heart of everything I do at Progrexion.
I have spent my career building interactive web, network and wireless platforms for consumers worldwide. I particularly enjoy leveraging mobile and network data/architecture to support personalization, radical (sad but true..) notions of consumer choice and novel use of profiles. Read More
Businesses get built on “more”. More customers, more sales, more employees, more cash. More market share, more dividends, and more bonuses. Show a boss a chart with a sales line, and she will ask for more. This is not a bad thing on its own. The struggle is that as business leaders in search for more customers we are prone to ignore the relationships we have with our current customers.

Recently our team listened to a TED Talk by Dan Gilbert about Happiness. This has provoked me to think a lot about my happiness in the work place as well as my happiness at home and in my personal life. We were asked the question, what is your ideal happiness?

I want to achieve that attainable ideal happiness on a regular basis! Read More

“Our industry does not respect tradition – it only respects innovation.” – Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft
I’m a huge fan of Microsoft. Lame right? Like, really, is that even a thing? Probably not. But it is for me. Everything about the company rings true, from their mission statement to their consistency with innovation. And they are also behind the company that brought us the Chief.
