Brainmates hosted this Sydney talk on building and scaling product management teams. We focused on initial product hires, division of labor as teams grow, and owning end-to-end bits of value. And we laughed about product challenges that the entire group shares.
Conway’s Law is an old but useful idea: the organizational structure of software teams shows in their code. The technical architecture grows to look like the org chart. In broader terms, how we group people and delineate teams has a real impact on the products we produce. How does this apply to product management teams?
