Product team overview
At the same time, engineering small teams are multidisciplinary and have different focuses within the Product. To support Engineering well, Product and Design are cross-functional too and can work within multiple small teams. Instead of Product Managers (PMs) and Product Designers working on everything a small team works on, they have specific goals that trascend team lines.
PMs or Product Designers fully belong to the relevant small teams (up to 2) so both teams have a strong sense that the person is there to support them both equally in respect to the goals, and to make it clear there are no inter-team dependencies.
Chris (bio) is a Product Designer part of the Core Experience and Core Analytics Team. In operational terms, Chris participates in team rituals for both teams, particularly plannings, but only joins to 2 out of 3 standups every week.
