The patterns and practices from our playbook work for teams and companies of all sizes with all kinds of projects – whether it is an established company aiming for a modern, remote-friendly process, a founder setting up their own product team or an individual product manager, designer or developer looking to make their team more effective.
Iterating in small increments and validating assumptions at every step of the process allows addressing business needs with digital products effectively.
Organizing and preparing work based on the input of all project shareholders maximizes a team's effectiveness and output quality.
Large tasks become better planable and less risky when decomposed into smaller units. This applies to full products that should be broken down into an MVP and subsequent increments but also for finer grained development or design tasks.
Transparent communication and decision making processes are key for successful projects. Channeling communication through tools makes it transparent to all stakeholders and keeps a persistent record of discussions and decisions which is critical in particular for remote teams.
We believe the classic project manager role is an organisational anti-pattern and advocate for self-organised project teams. Close and direct collaboration between all stakeholders fosters alignment towards a common goal and is essential to a project's success.
