2023 Meetup Series
We aim to bring together the tech communities in Romania with similar interests, that are ready to share ideas and discover new ways of growing through collaboration.
PRODUCT DEV. Meetup
Short term fix vs long term innovation in product development
Although short-term vs long-term planning is sometimes seen as a “business vs tech” type of discussion, this is not always true. In many cases, we need to balance the trade-offs between a quick business (or technical) solution and a long-term one. Do we fix this bug quickly or invest in a proper technical solution? Do we create a quick throw-away spike or we invest in a well-designed feature? If this is something you often encounter in your professional environment let's get together for this meet-up.
We will use Harp, our in-house HR application, as an example. The app was built in an environment full of ideas and changes, and had its share of challenges that we will discuss during the meetup.
We are always debating in the team the long-term views and short-term needs, looking for quick wins, but also developing a mature and stable product. We are in need of personalization but aimed for a standard, core product. If you find similarities with your professional challenges, we invite you to join us as we plan to share how we managed to innovate and build a fine product, with both our business and technical teams having their gains in this journey.
Agenda for this session:
Examples of how we navigate business vs technical discussions - Navigate business and technical discussions. We will share our most feverish debates and the outcomes that came from them.
