Asking for a friend…imagine your building you first product operations team that’s going to support a 50-person product management organization (with expectations to double in size in one to two years)  

  1. What would the structure look like?
  2. What roles would you have?
  3. What would be the first things you’d want to accomplish
  4. What would you add next as you scale it?

Why are you building a product ops team? What benefits do you want it to provide to your organization?

A good source of inspiration and information around this matter is a recent talk done by @Acesario from OutSystems about “Product Ops: Scaling Processes & Practices to Fuel Product-Led Growth
