Internal-Facing Products Don't Have to Be Bad - ProductTank

Internal-Facing Products Don't Have to Be Bad - ProductTank

Customer-facing products often have internal-facing tools. There’s the tendency to not think of them as products, and give them just enough attention to produce a low-quality tool that “kind of does the trick” - even when they support a critical part of the service the product provides. The idea of this talk is to use real examples of internal-facing products and explain why it makes sense to give them the same treatment as customer-facing ones, and how to ensure they’re valued throughout the company.
