This is a very nice article I stumbled upon the other day. It is not exactly spot on to the topic of product leadership. However, it is worthwhile to read. It gives a much broader context of what is happening in our economy and in our organizations. Also, there are quite a few graphs and diagrams in there I enjoyed in other places. Putting them all in one place and telling a story is a real value add.
I like the definition of the organization:
The organization is an economic device and embodied idea for achieving a shared purpose that requires the work of many people.
I am not in full agreement with the discussion of hierarchy, but haven’t fully made up my mind on that topic. I will touch it in a later post. But have a look for yourself.
