A Deep Dive Into Product Strategy
At this week’s Leadership Forum, @DocHabanero walked the community through how the Product Nest thinks about product strategy and how they prioritize the pipeline.
This shift in tactics is being guided by developing products that the market is telling us that they want and that are profitable in the short term & long term. Index Coop is becoming domain area experts about what’s possible to build given today’s liquidity constraints, market forces, and engineering capabilities.
