SharkTank Robert herjavec on business development and project management

This interview is definitely a must watch for start ups and young entrepreneurs,
Robert Herjavac is a sensible visionary ,His altruistic nature is very profound,
I am sure all his opinions on business is going to intrigue all the listeners .
Robert is an entrepreneur was born in Yugoslavia (Croatia) in a mediocre family .His father was a manager and an anti communist who went to jail 22 times every time accusing and abusing fellow communists.
Roberts dad was a 15th born child, Roberts grandfather was dead when his father was in his grandmother’s womb.

As Robert’s life was in peril, Robert along with his mother migrated to Italy as an immigrant.
Robert had only enough money to take the train from Heilbronn to Toronto (Canada) when they landed in Canada, he lived with a family whom his mother knew in their basement for 2 years.
Robert’s dream was to earn 1000 dollars per year relevant to his age like 50000 per year by the time he turned 50, with a decent house and a used covert .

Robert is now a millionaire and he says he always keeps doing things which scares him and keeps him on edge, to motivate him to do business with high enthusiasm and potential

Robert also says is you are a person who is afraid of change, please do not do business,He says change is constant.
Robert says most small business owners do not consider business as  a business
Robert says its significant to treat the business as a living thing,  a living system and the need for constant iteration as we do with any living thing.

A person should be on constant anamnesis and have an  attitude of -bring it on every day, else he cannot survive. Robert utters that adaptability is what is needed to survive.

Robert spends more on the company than the sales achieved 3 years ago.
And the payroll or loan is above the sales 5 years ago, which tends to freak him out every day.
Robert shares an experience with his employee which goes like, there was an employee name bob who used the every third client to develop his own company.

This came as a shock to Robert as he was a kind guy and genuine person.
Robert considers himself as a control freak but also says that people need to learn to let go of certain responsibilities to respective people still being responsible for the actions

Robert emphasizes on the importance of having the data in front of you on how the business is running is a must, Robert says that he is a better leader than a manager as he came from a hell hole in life, desperation to survive taught him to thrive in business.
Robert says one needs to invest more time as the company grows bigger, one needs to invest time in the right sectors and maintain conversations with the right employees. So it’s very important to equip with the perfect tools to make the data assessment accurate.

Robert has a phrase engraved on a granite over his desk stating,-“everyday someone wakes up with the sole intention to kick your ass”

He quotes,-“if you are very comfortable with the life currently its the beginning of the end”.
Robert is currently trying to make his businesses global.

Third Person –Jay Pack lick

Fourth person- Shouvik Bhattacharyya 

Middle guy moderator-guess one thing, only one thing you would say which is strength for your way of approach and solid weakness; I want you to recognize both of them from the approach that you discuss

Second Person Mark Yarbro- oh you want us to talk about our entrap.

Middle guy moderator- yes you’re shrewdly actually misplucking from Esperance perspective right.

Third Person Jay Packlick-So what, its greatest strength and

Middle guy moderator-greatness and strength and I mean

Second Person Mark Yarbro- this is like a job interview right it’s already starting with disagreement.

Middle guy moderator-it is, it is, when you pick one that you fell like the most important thing which you wanna hire from a practical now view perspective, that’s the essence I am looking for.

First Person Satyapal Chhabraso the strength it works and the weakness it doesn’t optimize resources, it’s very sequential, you have lot of wasted time

Middle guy moderator-so you are you gonna lever that guy, blah blah blah

Second Person Mark Yarbro-yes, what you gonna do, when you read articles about agile great on how great and wonderful agile is and terrible waterfall is , don’t believe either side right!!,at the bank we do waterfall but we do every 90 days and we do design , coding, component integration testing, system integration testing, performance testing and we do 1200 applications every 90 days right!!? It works and its rapid ,its iterative but its vey very easy if work through a stick stigma like we are, it’s easy to have blind spots , loss of resources , people sit on their hands and a lot a waste of time. Or doing the wrong things because we are not rapidly iterating, it’s like you knowing where the bathroom is right!!, if you were to follow , you close your eyes and walk to the bathroom how many time gonna stuck your toe and trip over a chair, agile your constantly coming and looking to make sure you can make adjustments right !!? Right!! Think about it like driving to Cleveland right!! You wanna see on the map, waterfall is, I want to see it on the map with Dallas and Cleveland on a same piece of paper and what route are we gonna take agile is ok where the bathroom gonna stop helping with the distance mu car can go right!!, where we gonna take meals, when we gonna sleep right its myth real world should be brought alive

Fourth person Shouvik Bhattacharyya – so I think use the example of financial success company who were engaged in, so the CIA wanted to move over as he said, you know!! 75 percent of the organization does waterfall in 25 percent of the assets, so as in terms of strength, when you want to start the next project and say actually this the way we are gonna go, you get the top talent it’s the sexiest thing, there is a lot excitement so the strength is if you’re a manager or a in the market or the it side, you get the best, team best resources whatever you need Right!?Son the weakness is that creates unrealistic time to market because everybody is so excited, I think lot of time we offer service of postmortem of agile projects right!? And in that what we find out is that it did deliver but the expectations were so unrealistic that this was gonna be done faster , better , cheaper every single time that people use it you know !! And especially waterfall people like my friends here are been added for 70 years they are experts in bringing the other people down

Middle guy moderator-really that’s just old

Fourth person Shouvik Bhattacharyya – yeah!? I have to get it in, I have to get it in, so what happens is that experts are going to wait ohh!! Agile Is going to fail or or we say even if it succeeded I have been in the situation of postmortem where, they say oh, oh it looks like you know!! it was little, it was a slight variance but you know within the boundaries of acceptance and the waterfall guys will come and say, no no, no, no , we have done ie so much better and we have done a better scope, it goes back to scope vs. value, so that’s what I see as the strength and the weakness

Third Person Name Jay Packlick- so

Middle guy moderator-jay

Third Person Name Jay Packlick-so I am out of paint word ,we obviously painted the difference between this two approaches, and that’s why I could speak to the strength, so waterfall is actually more of a mind set, waterfall is a mindset I want to eliminate uncertainty by asking the right questions , do enough research ,make decisions early that they pay off and that actually works really great in two scenarios , relatively simple problems ,which is not our world it never were, in complicated problems , there is actually a framework called canephen, which very clearly defines how you approach problems, in canephen, next level, complexity yields to announces, that’s awesome there are enough parts to it ,enough information, enough analysis I can answer questions allow me know how to proceed, in a complex world, where I have autonomous agents ,multiple layers  , the technology stack in this thing is probably 20 levels deeper than you and I started with  one computer talking to one database right !?

Second Person Mark Yarbro- That’s 100 times more than Apollo space craft

Third Person Name Jay Packlick- yeah, not just the computing power, it is interacting with lots of stages in the universe some of which are trying to destroy it in you, so our ability as human beings, yeah!!, our ability as human beings to reason around something this complex has capped out, we cannot understand in advance what the fuck is this gonna do

Middle guy moderator-wooo

Third Person Name Jay Packlick-excuse my language, so here is the deal, in a world of complexity , I had better use and approach that is empirical , I have better use in approach that says let me do something and understand if it worked or not because I cannot understand in advance whether it will for some for some things, so what is the strength in agile ,it is a match to the problem of complexity , it is match of the problem trying to understand the world beyond our understanding the unknown unknowns are way beyond our imagination, so we better have a mechanism to advance and move forward in away its rational not in a way that suits our desire from predictability because that is not the world we live in, so that’s the strength in agile , what’s its weakness ,you know living in an unpredictable world is hard in, embracing the unpredictable is hard , human beings don’t want to do that, asking people to step up and be accountable and be all in and be skillful and motivated is not something lot of people are not prepared to do, so weakness of this process weakness of this approach is human barter system like earning system

Second Person Mark Yarbro- and everyone in the organization should confront, come up with that at the same time

Third Person Name Jay Packlick-absolutely

 

Second Person Mark Yarbro-right!! Because the individual contributors can commit and the management can say you’re fired, you didn’t meet your deliver load

Forth person  Shouvik Bhattacharyya- The agile people when they think about planning they think about strategy in the plan, with waterfall people they think more about the plan itself , so that’s my thing you know, that’s the difference

Middle guy moderator-very well said , so strategy and blah blah blah, so having said that we have two sides of the view we’ll move on to the next war, talk about you know there are a lot of  blah blah blah , talk about the activities , meanings ,inclusiveness has gravity through blah blah blah.

Second person  Mark Yarbro- so inclusiveness we have 1200 applications today, and these things not all of them released, but we release 90 days later, the way that works is , we get everybody together so everyone is working locked still because it’s very difficult to release one product when it doesn’t line up with the others, we are doing like my world accordance testing , we are pushing loads through 30 different applications, they need to be ready all around the same time not just the apps , the platforms that’s been installed the ecosystems have to be released together, so we are living being we are living in space and time we move in single line that’s where waterfall hangs around because it has been working for 70 years, agile is a great way to get things done if you know what you need ,if the customer is not being clear but much more difficult to hold everyone to release the app in same time, so my argument is that you need highbred ,agile , here is the first job here agile

Middle guy moderator-keep it to your side

Second person Mark Yarbro- I will, oh (sarcasm), so you need to make doing the right things not just doing the wrong things badly

 

Third Person Name Jay Packlick-sure, sure.

Middle guy moderator-so your retenders and minor attributes are surely appreciated.

Second person Mark Yarbro- You’re welcome

Middle guy moderator-Thanks for that

First Person Name Satyapal Chhabra- that’s fine, just adding to it because that doesn’t prove them, methodology or the process eventually in waterfall, waterfall may be traditional tube and it has certain link available it has some fertile waterfall in which doesn’t necessarily add for agile world sense, so to look at performance, if you look at that classical performance carefully it gives you proper migration space, but instead of waterfall we are doing many  penetrations in a day to get the optimum state

Second person – Mark Yarbro –develop is our singer what is , they are starting to work for the next spring, they are pulling things off the back ,when we all be planning on what are they gonna be working on the next spring, you know what that is , that’s waterfall. You’re doing four week water fall,

Third person- Jay Packlick –now he is talking

Second person – Mark Yarbro –in in historical methodology terms that’s more rare, rapid application development ,it’s a 1990’s term, that’s what most people do when theyu are calling it scrum or agile, I was trained in 2004 by people who were trained by( dash and dash-)we were trained in things they aren’t trained in anymore, its ugly, its messy, real scrum it’s so fun, its battle royal , its muddy , its sweaty and messy and you can get so much accomplished but it’s not pretty and management especially in big corporations are very on adamant, messy, seemingly off control kind of a process .The whole organization has to change and that’s when I learned the dirty secrets of scrum, agile you have to think differently act differently all up the chain and it’s hard to change people behavior

Middle guy moderator- sure

Second person – Mark Yarbro –it’s a superior methodology in a lot of ways but you don’t take it into account it’s like communism, socialism

Middle guy moderator along with the crowd– wooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Second person – Mark Yarbro –they don’t take into account the human factor no seriously you visually run out of other people’s money.

Middle guy along with the crowd- shouting and mumbling.

Fourth person Shouvik Bhattacharyya- last example, everybody is not obama here, we got two jams republicans vs. democrats so it’s our dish 480 million dollars were spent by a company in Canada, you guys know about this 480 million, what was the name of the company I forgot. yeah ok, 480 million and everything was held up right, it went blank , you couldn’t even login it was a mess, then they handed over to Accenture 90 million dollars and the guys delivered , I mean whichever side of the aisle you are , you can argue  but from an IT perspective and whether you can login and deliver I do I act to it, so it’s a classic case to your point since you called us dominance, we are practical and realistic alright because we could gather to get in with, at the end of the day if you see I’ll go back to the other question scope vs. value the Canadian company were doing all the right things waterfall scope, there is Hugh scope

 

Middle guy making fun-a phrase

Third person Jay Packlick- so I am gonna throw myself before methodology don’t produce results; people right, so if you bring up an example we are guard less of our framework and someone is making a bad decision and I am not getting feedback on my that bad decision I am gonna!!, I am gonna!! Have a bad result

Second person – Mark Yarbro –right

Third person Jay Packlick- so its irregardless of your approach, I think where agile benefits Is if I do have a faster feedback, if I am legitimately using the information, I get it to say this words or doesn’t work then I have an opportunity at least to make a decision that leads to better results, I may ignore that data and I am gonna be 100 percent behind you

Fourth person Shouvik Bhattacharyya- he needs to change

Third person Jay Packlick- yeah , I am on the wrong side now I behave in north behavior real hard , real example, if I am gonna work right here boss , bad news I get fired, if I am working in a room where everybody shuts up when the boss walks in, if I am gonna play where people don’t give a crap, you know they just wanna get in get the paycheck and get out they don’t want to have a conversation, they don’t wanna do kumbayas and stand up, guess what they are probably not gonna succeed without framework and by all means fit your framework to meet your problems your cultural problem your problem space the worst thing you can do is to take Cinderella’s slippers and try to fit it on her big fat sister, because it ain’t gonna fit.

Fourth person- Shouvik Bhattacharyya 

 

Fourth person – Shouvik Bhattacharyya- i like to point it out in the agile world as long as you’re including the right set of

People you might decrease the scope dramatically because you will provide the right value so i think that’s why is becoming more and more

Popular because everybody speak to market today right so you cannot just think i am going to keep on increasing the scope and the customers gonna wait for me

 

Third person – Jay Packlick-i wanna give one real world example

Middle guy moderatorReal quick!!

Third person  – Jay Packlick  –Real quick!!,I was working with clients they had six months project, we had an algorithm to implement ,the potential for the algorithm was to increase revenue something like 5 million dollars per month , that was the value proposition and they were able to achieve that after 3 weeks, so now it works , they implemented the algorithm demonstrated that we can do that and it went into production in the end of four weeks so they dropped rest of the projects because there was other projects which had much higher return so I am just showing you an example decisions maximize value.if you are in business to make money tend to pay off  you know!! If you update your plan

Middle guy moderator-true argument!!True argument from human value perspective. Scope or value what is the most important thing from the marching edge.

First person-Satyapal Chhabra- lets face it packlick, waterfalls perspective is the scope, not because they don’t want to deliver the value, the word inclusion right , the word inclusion has already covered every part of the scope, scope is given by someone who is qualified- (A)

B-they know the business or they are the business

Third person – Jay PacklickThey think they know, they are making a decision

First person-Satyapal Chhabra-I get it, one thing is , the waterfall again, in mean let’s face it it is something that is meant to deliver within the finite scope or finite cost and manufacture, agile means to, we can do it but we need inclusion by the right people or participation from right people that’s a Hugh assumption

Third person – Jay Pack lickthat’s true

First person-Satyapal Chhabra- that’s why agile becomes cyclic and goes for ever, it gets shelved or I don’t know, waterfall at least tends to deliver something which will be completely like a Motorola’s dynatac like a brick you can hit your wall  ,I don’t you guys know about Motorola’s iridium product it was delivered like a brick you can hit your wall  you can do dumbbells like that ,you can build muscles with it but you cannot make a phone call with that.

Third person Jay Packlick- the first question on the (can’t understand)

First person-Satyapal Chhabra- yes exactly, the point is that

 

Third person – Jay Packlickso if you’re starting, you probably don’t want that much

First person-Satyapal Chhabra- so point is you went all the with 3 billion dollars investment, when you deliver something waterfall, yes agile would have given you the feedback early, I get the part but again it’s a where do you apply this, it’s up to the business or the IT team I would say to figure it out, what’s the best solution, right, so so, scope maybe encompassing the value

Third person Jay Packlick- so the scope raises the value is the subjective view from you. Mark do you like to add something?

 

Second Person Name Mark Yarbro-no I think shouvik is excited let him

Fourth person   Shouvik Bhattacharyya-rise rise raise your hand if you want more stocks or more return on your investments. So raise your hands for stocks

Middle guy  moderator- stock buyers come on rise your arms

First Person (Satyapal Chhabra)- That has worked which is a worenforen, we go back to basic, so agile is an adoption through new techniques of econorkia, the gap we are talking about is more of adoption from previous players, so there is something called product coring, product coring means eparchy, so eparchy doesn’t work, because I could be doing right thing in wrong direction all the life

Third person (Jay Packlick) -I am sorry

First Person (Satyapal Chhabra)-or you know it’s a classical discrepancy right, you did it right but wrong completely in wrong direction, you jock the wrong forest something like that

Middle guy moderator-great points on both the sides we realized for quite some time , moving on to the third way, this time I am going to flip the switch to the agile folks , what’s more important in your philosophy, is it the scope or the value

Third guy (Jay Packlick)- so scope or value, so first of all if you are describing them separately you have describing problem

Middle guy moderator– it’s described separately for the sake of the argument.

I remember when my father was struggling to learn to operate computers,
He always hated the back button ,he wanted the click to elongate an icon or folder on the same page on the side, and he doesn’t listen if I teach him to try using folders and files layout on the left side panel, he didn’t listen he was a stubborn man like most pops.

This user interface will be a candy land for him to manage his projects ,he won’t even care about any other features ,”keep it simple”he used to say , silly pop.

Basecamp is easily the coolest tool on the market. It is extremely user friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

The best thing about basecamp is its homepage, its like “damn good”
Ok folks I need to tell u this story now,
Once I was about to play a song with my guitar in a club. I left the guitar in a place near the performing area to get me a drink from the bar ,I happened to meet a guy who got the drink for me in the crowd, so normally we started talking and laughing on jokes and there was a group of beautiful ,(I mean totally hot)… shhhh…. Girls on our 3 o clock noticing us facing the performing area, as we (me and the new booze buddy) went near the performing area which was near this group of angels, the guy took my guitar in hand not knowing it was mine and went to approach the girls, after a few minutes it was my time to perform, I borrowed the guitar from him and rocked, the stage, if u must know the song, it was “coming back to life”-pink Floyd
(Haven’t listened to pink Floyd, stop everything; do that first)
Now suddenly I am a rock star there and I happened to get the phone number of the entire group, in separate instances of course, come on ……
And I told my sad newly acquired friend, Bro “it’s not about just looking cool; it’s being cool what makes you look cool….”

So basecamp -why cool? , it simply gets the job done
