Ep08 – Stories from a Founder: Product Development Challenges and Finding Success


For Episode 8 of the Business Decisions podcast, we’re joined by David Burnie, the Principal and Founder of The Burnie Group. ( Over the past 8 years David has built The Burnie Group into a successful mid-sized consulting firm with expertise in strategy, automation and innovation. The Burnie Group has built an impressive roster of clients and has ranked as one of Canada’s top 100 fastest growing companies for the past three years. David talks with us about the importance of building strong client relationships, and some of the challenges associated with negotiating contracts when each client project is unique.
After the conversation with David Burnie, (22:00) we’re joined by David Cummings from Caravel Law. David shares his thoughts on service agreements, how companies can tackle issues like scope creep, how they should think about IP ownership as projects evolve, and how an agile development process should be covered during negotiations with clients.
It’s important to note that David Cummings is sharing his thoughts on general topics and questions and not anyone’s specific business or legal situation. Nothing you hear on this podcast should be considered legal advice.
