* The right PM to Eng ratio depends on a couple of different factors, many of which can from my perspective be boiled down to 1) the overall stage and scale of the company and 2) the nature of the product you are working on. Given those dependencies, it also makes sense to revisit this ...Read More

How do you measure the performance of the product team, considering only product managers, group product managers and product head?
Some companies go through challenges such as excessive bugs, refactoring, in many cases we have the company pursuing the delivery of short-term projects and sometimes the product team is the driver. Do you believe it is possible to demand performance from a product team based on individual delivery?
