Move your teams in the same direction
- Notes and examples from a product managers journal
Customer focused, data driven and tech enabled - through agile (or lean) cross functional and autonomous teams. Does this sound like your company's aspirations - either you're a startup or a big player being digitally transformed? If so, welcome to a talk about how to bring these buzzwords to life. In particular autonomy and alignment - and how it needs to be understood by the entire company and managed well to actually have real impact once you scale.
Through rapid growth, Kolonial.no has learned first hand the impact autonomous teams can have if they are set up right. But also how impact from autonomy degrades if it's not actively enabled and supported. In this talk I will share some thoughts on how to solve for autonomy through alignment and more - with examples from Kolonial.no.
