More Product Blocks

This document is part of the series.

Remember the days when you were a child and you were building things with lego?

You used plastic blocks that had different shapes and colors to make various creations like buildings, vehicles, and animals. The same set of plastic blocks let you build different things. The only thing that was stopping you was your imagination.
Building things with lego is not that far from building teams and companies. Think of the ways of working of each team and company as a set of lego. Each plastic block represents a specific technique, framework, and principles used.
. While each company is different, the building blocks used by the best product companies (think Apple, Google, Amazon, Spotify, Netflix, and many more) are shockingly similar. This is where I write about the blocks they use - their techniques, practices, frameworks, principles, and views. No fancy talk, just step-by-step instructions on how to apply those yourself.

My name is , I'm a CTO and a product leader, and that's the future I want to help build. That's why I created this newsletter.

Product Blocks is a newsletter on building blocks for creating great product teams and successful tech companies step-by-step.
