The Problem

Stride was brought in at a time when Paddle8 was experiencing rapid growth and increasing pressure to deliver new features at a faster pace. Our goal - transition an outdated PHP codebase to a more modern Django and React stack. In addition, Stride was tasked with helping modernize the team’s existing process and structure.

The Goal

  •  Identify process and structure changes that would enable the development team to better collaborate and scale processes around code at scale
  • Find an alternative solution to imposing change onto the product team from the top down
  • Explore the pros and cons of a new team-based structure directly with the developers.Establish clarity on Plated's priorities

The Result

In place of a single monolithic development team, Stride split the Paddle8 team into two smaller teams each led by a product manager. This allowed teams to own broad areas of responsibility across two backlogs. And with the team structure in place, individual teams began bi-weekly iteration planning meetings, retros, and daily standups that felt useful and productive. The ultimate result was more collaboration, better estimation, and a happier product team.
