What are common diseases of product teams, and how do you avoid them? Why should you focus less on problem discovery and more on solution discovery? How do you maintain your product mojo? After working as a product leader for over 20 years, Marty Cagan started Silicon Valley Product Group to help product teams operate at a higher level. In this conversation, Marty shares what Steve Jobs can teach you about building product, how to structure your teams for innovation, how to improve your product culture, which trends in PM to ignore, and much more. After this, you’ll never think about building teams the same way. Join us.
Wouldn't showing someone pictures of the grand Canyon be a pretty good way of explaining the Grand Canyon? :D
Great podcast.. Thanks for this conversation.
This is for sure the best podcast of the series for product manager purists and those who crave long successful careers as a product leader. (Not lead as Marty says ;-) )
One thing that is clear from many of Lennys podcasts, adding the business side (ops or founder) would be brilliant to add to the discussion and educating many product managers. Why? Adding in a ceo / founder and the product lead to discuss what, why and how they make the right decisions in their org.
On the good product team experiment bit: getting strategic context in a feature factory company usually leads to a longer list of features to be built. People don't operate with product strategy terms. Best case - you get a list of goals like "X daily users by 2024" or "Y revenue this year", and people honestly think it's strategy. Going about it the right way would require essentially doing a product strategy for the whole company, which may not be feasible. What's a good way to solve it locally and get enough strategic context to start?
