We’re creating an evolving “curriculum” of bite-size writings, to help people quickly get their heads around our basic philosophy about running successful technology efforts using a "product team" framework.
Some of the thinking here reflects lessons learned over the years. In some cases it borrows from existing methodologies, and other parts of it represent plain old common sense.
But taken together, we think it is an effective framework for breaking the common cycle of technology dysfunction and debacles, and moving instead towards strategic, consistent, high-quality technology.
