Collocation, Trust, and Distributed Teams

Roman Pichler

A Tale of Two Products. I once worked with a telco company that was developing a brand-new commercial product. Product management and development were located at separate sites in different countries. But this didn’t seem to matter much as everybody was in great spirits and had high hopes for the new product. What’s more, the product people would occasionally visit the development site, and development group members would travel to product management from time to time.

Learning to Unlearn – Barry O’Reilly on The Product Experience

Mind the Product

Author, advisor, professor, and podcaster Barry O’Reilly joined us on The Product Experience where we learned that he has a lot of sympathy for senior executives. These are people, he points out, whose entire career has led them to a position of responsibility and reward – so it naturally follows that the behaviours that got them to this point are the same ones that should ensure continued success.

Agile & Scrum: How to Build Better Products, Faster in 2020

The Product Coalition

By Jasmine Slivka The idea of Agile is an iterative approach to software development that builds software incrementally instead of trying to deliver it all at once with an arbitrary deadline (as with traditional “waterfall” approaches). Agile works by breaking projects down into little bits of functionality, usually called user stories, prioritizing them, and then continuously delivering them in short cycles called Iterations or Sprints. These cycles typically span one to two weeks.

ONE THING on How to Get Rich in Product

Product Culture

People often tell me that their product exists to make the company money, and that their pay and promotion chances depend on growth. But is that really why we make products? To get rich? Or is business success a side effect of making customers successful? Perhaps I am naive. If you had the money to retire tomorrow, would you? Or would you still want to solve customer problems? (I’ve I’ve often said that when I retire someday I will volunteer to redo airport signage.) Tell me a story.
