Scaling Decisions as a Product Team

What happens when your team gets really big? In this talk, Elaine tells the story of how the Adobe XD product management team scaled decisions for a recently-released feature that cut across almost the entire product. From processes to values, specific challenges to behavioral analysis, this case study covers how a product team can pull together to make decisions that are coherent to a system at scale.
