Attracting developer talent and removing ‘weeds of process’ cio.co.uk/news/workforce…
The video from my August talk at ProductTank Stockholm has been posted. I get started around 18:08, but the other talks were pretty good too, so you should watch them all if you can.
ProductTank Sthlm August was all about “Creating drive in product development”. It featured three great speakers:
Siavash Ghorbani (@siavashq), CTO & Co Founder of Tictail, talked about Building a Product Driven Organisation:
“I’m planning to talk about the different phases we as an organisation went through as we grew from 4 to 30 over the past two years and how we’ve recruited and structured our organization for high throughput without penalizing creativity.”
Kevin Goldsmith (@KevinGoldsmith), Director of Engineering at Spotify, talked about Autonomous Teams:
“Spotify has made a central bet that we can move faster, be happier and be more effective with autonomous, full-stack teams. We’ve had some great success with this approach, but it hasn’t been without some tweaking and adjustments. I’ll talk about what is critical to think about if you want to try this with your product. ”
Tuva Palm (@tuvapalm), Group Product Manager Platform at Klarna, talked about Growing from 1 Customer to 3.5 Billion:
“I will talk about how the PM role changes when you grow and what critical ingredients remain the same no matter the size.”
Drinks and a light snack were be provided by Logi Analytics, fueling the energy behind these talks and the great conversations throughout the evening.
