A Tale of Belonging

A Tale of Belonging

In the process of writing our book, Product Leadership, we've discovered that high performing product teams share similarities with a wide variety of successful teams, including sports teams. For fast scaling organizations, the structure of those teams and the signals are of special interest. This presentation describes some of the key behaviors and the team structures that generate the best outcomes.
