I’m always thinking about how to be a better partner to my tech lead (TL) and how to distill my learning into a repeatable formula I can adapt to any situation. I remember once kicking off a meeting for a PRD I had just written with a new tech lead. My goal was to finish the meeting with a timeline and milestones. While we accomplished those things by the end of the meeting, I had a sinking feeling that the meeting didn’t go well, but I couldn’t pinpoint the reason.
Hi! I think you may have wanted to put a different table for the second one.
The experience and lesson are clear and straightforward, but the API analogy is not explained or illustrated in the examples/guiding principles.
Don't mean to be rude, but I think this post could use some further editing. There are a number of inconsistencies (e.g. using tech lead, engineer, and EM interchangeably, fast iterations equal success in both frameworks?) that make it a bit hard to follow.
