Your growing startup needs product management
As the CEO/CTO of a growing startup, you’re starting to feel the pain of managing a growing product:
- The company isn’t aligned around the product strategy
- The features you build don’t have a well defined scope
- The team isn’t communicating status and timelines
- You have a dozen other priorities that need your attention
So, it’s time to put a proper product management process in place, but you need an extra set of hands to lead this so you can focus on your growing company.
