“We asked our group to rate the process of prioritisation on a scale where 0 meant the process is very easy and 5 meant the process is very difficult.
Average score out of 5 = 3
Of those who rated prioritisation more difficult, their biggest challenge was communicating priorities to stakeholders and getting buy-in. Other issues included, a lack of commitment to priorities at the leadership level, a focus on outputs rather than outcomes, shifting resources and planning ‘what to build’ instead of tackling consumer problems, need, and value.”
“It was about 12 months ago when I was challenged by our CEO to dismantle our squad and create a growth team. Not being too sure what a growth team was, we started anyway. We got access to work completed by Andrew Chen & Brian Balfour, took a few courses from the Reforge series and started developing our growth loops. It all seemed so straightforward and I was so naïve! The more we got into the weeds of these growth models, the more we found areas of data that we did not have access to, parts of the business that were run in silos and issues with bringing it all together.”

“A Sprint Planning checklist? How dare you: Agile is a mindset, not a methodology. It is a journey, not a destination. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, and what else could you possibly cover with a checklist, the mother of all standardized processes?
Well, it always depends on the purpose of a tool’s application. Read more about why Scrum checklists are a handy tool if applied at an operational, hands-on level, reduce your cognitive load, and free up time for more relevant things.”
“Product manager and Project manager, these two often confusing words have vital roles to play in a company. The reason for the confusion is obvious because the two terms are regularly utilized reciprocally. They both work closely with a very thin line between them. The difference comes in the discipline where they are required with a different set of skills and tools.
The Product manager drives the improvement of the Product. They organize activities and settle on vital choices about what gets manufactured. They are considered as the driving force of a product offering and spotlight on business destinations, quantifiable objectives, and positive results.”
