How to build high performing product teams — 4 pillars

Culture

  • Policies and standards that don’t murder creativity
  • Policies and standards that don’t coddle
  • Policies and standards that show the intent vs the prescriptive activities
  • Trust
  • In this together, a responsibility that everyone shares
  • Contribution and support to result (not task)
  • No Audits, No Police

Strategy

  • Structure matches ambitions
  • POC transition to supported project are known
  • Sprints adhere to “lite” SDLC process
  • Speed is embraced
  • Resources reflect ambitions too

Pragmatic

  • Create more hours for the team, give a security architect!
  • Create more hours for EVERY team, build reusable code elements
  • Establish architecture and backbones that can be reused

Empowerment

Give your teams permission

Give your team the tools, knowledge, and resources WHEN they need it

These teams are not robots, treat them accordingly

You matter the most
