Stalled: Getting Development into Gear

At technology companies, Engineering and Development is the motor that keeps the product moving forward. Unlike real motors made out of metal, this one depends upon a lot of moving parts that are all-too-human, so it stalls a lot. A Development effort that sputters and stalls too often can lead to a product that falls behind the market. It is vital for a Product Manager to get involved and hands-on with the product motor if it starts to stall. Product Managers can bring a different perspective to the Engineering team that can make all the difference in getting stalled development efforts started. Read Stalled: Getting Development into Gear for some useful ideas that you can use with the team to make your product develop and improve faster, and therefore gain ground on the competition.
