Scaling Product vs. Product at Scale

Spotify's squad model, IDEO's design process, Agile best practices, ... Why do these product organization and product development processes seem to work so well for the giants? Why is it so difficult for them to run as smoothly at my company? In this talk, we'll dive into some of the key differences between getting products to scale and stabilizing products at scale: what to focus on, what mentality adjustments you may need to adopt, how things change as you go from startup to large corporation, and what big product teams looking to transform can learn from the startup journey.
