The Silicon Valley Product Group (SVPG) was created to share our lessons learned and knowledge of best practices with our clients. Our four partners are all industry veterans, who have each held executive level positions at major Silicon Valley firms where they have been instrumental in the development of leading products. We are not career consultants; we started SVPG to share what we’ve learned. >> Manifesto >> Team
The Power of Milestones
In this article I wanted to talk about a concept that seems to be increasingly missing in product teams.
I find too many product teams just pounding away on the product backlog, story by story. Too many members of the team don’t really know how and why the stories are even there, they don’t understand the customer pain they’re trying to address, and they especially don’t understand how their work on this particular item helps to move the needle for their business.
