Course Description

Product Teams are cross-functional teams who guide the development of their products. As a product grows the number of teams required to support it grows as well. The current ways of managing teams results in a slow down in delivery speed and increasing bureaucracy. Product Teams are a way of scaling product development while maintaining the speed and effectiveness of small teams. Product Teams identify and fund the Stream Teams who will build the product. They are responsible for setting the strategy for the product, hiring and upskilling people, defining the ways of working and the establishing the culture of the teams. This course goes into detail in each area to help Product Teams effectively managing empowered Stream Teams.

Ways of Working: ZeroBlockers Foundation

Best practices are based on the principles of the activity and the context of the time. Once the context changes you need to re-assess your practices. The challenge is that all of our processes are interconnected so changes in one place impact others. To change process we also need to look at organisational structures, governance models, funding approaches, alignment techniques and scaling approaches. In this course, we dive into each of the core areas impacted to discover better ways of working that deliver better outcomes for companies.

Stream Teams

Stream Teams are empowered, autonomous, cross-functional teams that build the products from idea through to satisfied customers. Most teams operate as feature factories, building what they are told. Shifting to empowered teams requires changes to how teams are structured, how they work and how they interact with customers. This course covers the team structure, discovery, design and delivery techniques cross-functional teams can use to build amazing products.
