How to Move Your Team

  • Ask questions:
    • Talk to your engineers to understand their processes and roadblocks
    • Make this a regular, genuine process - don't do this only when you need to enforce a deadline
  • Learn from other teams:
    • Talk to other PMs to get a rough benchmark of other engineering teams' speeds
    • Learn their best practices to see if there is anything you can learn from them
  • Do post-mortems:
    • Get some feedback from all members involved. Go into these sessions with a goal of learning
  • Align skills, passions, and incentives:
    • If people are staffed on projects that they are passionate about or good at, naturally they will be more efficient and effective in their roles
