In order to build products people love in today’s fast-moving world we need to be experts on everything from design to engineering to machine learning. Since no one person can have all those skills it’s critical that we stop worrying about titles and build cross-functional teams who combine all this knowledge and experience with the autonomy to execute. In this talk Martin will show the benefits of thinking cross-functionally and how to set up teams for success this way.
