As a product manager and Chief Product Officer, I’ve learned that the key to productivity is not more resources, but rather a smaller, more talented team with specialist knowledge in software development frameworks. Embracing experimentation, validated learning, and “Pirate metrics” can also lead to greater productivity.
To become a 10x productivity hero, it’s important to understand what makes teams productive at different stages of the product and business lifecycle and to minimise waste by recognizing the benefits of smaller teams. Follow the “2 pizza box rule” on team size as a good rule of thumb.
Coordination and communication become crucial in larger teams, especially when not co-located. And remember that becoming a 10x programmer is not about doing an order of magnitude more work, but by making better decisions an order of magnitude more often.
Join the 10x productivity revolution by following my blog for more insights on increasing productivity and becoming a productivity hero in your organisation. My book will be out in early march.
