Normally the strategic context is part of the onboarding for any new product manager joining the organization.
- Company Mission (Business Model Canvas, Lean Canvas?)
- why we are here.
- usually lasting for a decade or more, if not the life of the company.
- Company Scorecard
- set of key performance indicators (KPI’s)
- referred to here as the company scorecard, and sometimes as the company dashboard
- Company Objectives
- Product Vision - shared across teams
- Normally the product vision is somewhere between 3 years and 10 years out.
- The mission may provide the purpose, but it’s the vision that begins to make this tangible.
- This is what empowered product teams will be figuring out: how to make this vision a reality.
- Product Strategy - per single product team
- The product strategy drives the specific work that each product team is intended to tackle
- we’re no longer discussing the overall strategic context, and we’re now looking at an individual product team,
- Product Principles (manifesto)
In my Triple-Loop Product Management page I compress these to 2 layers/loops. (And add 2 other loops for execution.)
Hmm, is culture orthogonal to this?
