Key practice in effective product development culture.

Effective product development teams have clear missions that are aligned with a broader overall product strategy. They are expected to act autonomously and empowered with the capability and support to do so. This typically requires the teams to be cross-disciplinary.

Autonomy is about enabling teams to decide and act more quickly.
