Welcome to Episode 34 of The Outliers Inn – Andy Dobson.
Topic: In this episode, your hosts, AntlerBoy an JP, start by lamenting the software industry and their almost arrogant – sometimes not almost arrogant – disregard for the customer and the user experience. Not that software companies will ever change, but rather a resignation that we have to endure. But the episode gets productive, or rather reproductive, with the introduction of Andy Dobson and his story of how he was a member of a small team at a company called Chartex that introduced the female condom <chuckles>; where they started by making hundreds of samples per day by hand, ramping up to a production capacity or 50-million units per year within 18 months. The rest of this episode is chock-o-block full of stories of Andy’s adventures and experiences in a variety of business.
