A brief list of documentations for any small product team to start growing right away without starting from scratch.

The goal of having a process is to reduce mental fatigue and stresses that are caused by a lack of clarity.

Once the team is freed from the constant nagging need to keep a constant working rhythm, more team resources can be dedicated to doing the right thing.

Here’s a list of templates and their contents that I use with all my product teams.

  • Overall business

    • North Star Metric (How to define success)
