More often than not, I see the business side of an enterprise focusing on development as the problem. How do you know if the business side is generating more than its share of problems? Ask yourself these simple questions:
- Has the tech team been replaced recently? (and more than once?)
- Do you get consistent explanations from the tech team? (different team members say the same thing?)
- Have you (as the business side) spent time to understand the tech side of the business? (is it as much time as you spent on business development, sales, and marketing?)
These questions will help you self-diagnose some of the key sources of your problems.
