Melbourne: Building and Scaling a Product Team

Topic: Building and Scaling a Product Team
Where: Zendesk, 67 Queen Street, Melbourne, AU
When: Tuesday, 27 February, 6:00 pm
Hosted by Product Anonymous (event blog post here)

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.)
