So, your business is committed to digital transformation. Perhaps you’ve already decided to invest in product. You have the vision, but the rest of the business needs bringing along the journey.
It's not as easy as just hiring a new team. Navigating product at a scaling business is an obstacle course of slow processes, legacy tech, sceptical stakeholders and communication breakdowns.
You need to be able to prove the success of your team – and its potential to help your business grow.
We invited product leaders to share their experience growing product teams at startups, corporates and everything in between.
The chat covers:
What are the signs that you've built enough momentum to scale?
How do you navigate conflicting priorities across different teams?
How do you influence existing ways of working with other teams who aren’t always open to change?
How do you work with stakeholders in a business that isn’t product-led?
What metrics do you use to track and communicate success?
