The Best vs The Rest (1/4) - Pushing decisions down to the team
The best tech companies work differently, and in ways most companies can't imagine. It may be perceived as utopian, unrealistic or orchestrated BS. Yet, the best teams are truly disciplined about a few principles.
The first one is to push decisions down to the team. In the best teams, the leaders identify and prioritize the problems to be solved but then, the team is fully autonomous to figure out the features to build to solve these problems. This autonomy and this authorization to decide what feature to build is a key concept of team empowerment that drives higher business results and higher employee retention.
You're a developer in a product team and you didn't decide or define the feature you're working on? Let's work all together to change this!
