Building and scaling a product team was most requested topic in Product Anonymous’ year-end survey. I test-drove a talk that tackled this in a few steps:
- When and how does a startup hire its first product manager?
- Division of labor: how do we grow from one to three to many product folks?
- End-to-end management of product elements/features, or product owner and business owner roles?
- What does a Head of Product do?
This was an interactive/collaborative session: we collectively laughed, cried, and shared a few cathartic moments. And gave away some books. ProdAnon’s notes, slides, and videos here.
(If you’ve already been through my three-lobe product organization chart, feel from to skip 5:00 through 12:40.)
