The Industrialist's Dilemma Session 3: Tony Fadell, Nest (video)

The Industrialist's Dilemma Session 3: Tony Fadell, Nest - Published on Jan 30, 2016 - The challenges of rethinking how one develops and delivers both products and services in industrial organizations is a non-trivial change in today's world, shared Nest CEO Tony Fadell. How one thinks through who the ultimate customer is for a company, the needs of those customers, and the organizational challenges of being an incumbent are both strong impediments for existing firms and opportunities for startups. "You have to start with a great product, but that is not enough... You have to figure out how to monetize those [products], and that is with services."

During his visit to The Industrialist's Dilemma on January 21, 2016, Tony discussed transforming old industries into data businesses with Lecturers Robert Siegel and Aaron Levie. Read more takeaways from the talk on Twitter: http://stanford.io/indusdilemma
