Product Collective - 🏃 Escape the feature factory

The Ultimate Guide on Escaping the Feature Factory

In the product management world, no team wants to become a feature factory. Despite this awareness, some teams over time slowly fall into the build traps and consistently release products, features, enhancements, etc., and predominantly focuses on quantity over quality.

With this eBook, airfocus and Product Collective want to help the product community identify the signs of working in a feature factory as well as offer solutions on how to make the transition to a value-focused company.

What's Covered?

Identifying the feature factory and why it’s a problem
The basics - what a feature factory is and why it’s a problem. In the next chapter, we will discuss why product managers or companies often fall into the feature factory trap.

How to transition from a feature factory to a value generation factory
In this part of this eBook, we will help you further identify if you are working in a feature factory. We have also prepared the solution and practical steps on how to escape and switch to delivering the value instead.

Using continuous discovery to deliver value to customers and users
Leverage continuous discovery to transition away from being a feature factory and once this becomes a staple within your company and teams, maintain this practice once you have fully become a value generation factory.

...and so, so much more.

After reading this eBook, you will have a much better understanding of what feature factories are, the multiple problems they cause, how to communicate with stakeholders, and detailed steps on escaping the feature factory trap.
