Investor Connect Podcast

Product Development Team Dynamics

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Product development requires a team approach.

Here’s a list of key points to consider:

Assess the skills of each team member to understand the group’s capabilities.

Set goals for the team before the project sprint begins.

Lack of clarity causes confusion among the team members.

Check the feasibility of the project sprint before launching it to make sure the team is on board. 

Break down big projects into a series of smaller ones that you can execute on.

Use a kanban or card-based tool to track the projects. 

It will highlight where there are too many bottlenecks.

Use scrum as a framework to manage the meetings, the tools, and the roles for the team members.

The project manager needs to exercise leadership in resolving conflicts among the team and setting priorities for projects.

There’s a tradeoff between quality, speed, and cost of which you get two.

It’s important the team buys into the tradeoffs made along the way.
