In this episode, we discuss how the way we organize teams can impact the effectiveness of an organization. Jeff and Simone share the journey of a team, how it changed, and how that team structure change affected not only the team itself but also the organization around them.
Simone shares that, at Meltwater, they try to focus on “empowered product teams”, and how that differs from most team setups.
We refer to the book Inspired by Marty Cagan, and how that book influenced their view on how to organize and structure product development teams.
The first problem they tackled was the Product Owner being an outsider to the team.
