Strategy when Hyper Scaling

My takeaways

  • There is a strong correlation between the opportunities you want to expand into and your headcount growth. You will create a strategy that explores new opportunities, and you will allocate new teams to those.
  • There is a constant need for strategy communication, since at all times there are many new people who needs to absorbe this context.
  • There is a strong need for “cascading” the strategy, and letting product leaders room to create their strategies aligned with the company-wide one.
  • There needs to be a concrete cadence to review strategy. Giving all the conflicting priorities, having these regular cadence helps “reserve” the time needed for strategy work.
