"Finding a scalable and efficient way for our product teams to deliver product value"
As Storytel have grown over the years, so has the number of people working with product and tech. Today, more than 150 people work on developing Storytel's product offering, which have given rise to a few challenges.
Mikael Holmquist, one of the longest serving Product Manager's at Storytel, lists a few challenges they where facing before they found Delibr:
"One tool for managing work, with all the details about each project at our fingertips"
The teams at Storytel started using Delibr for managing their work, and where able to successfully tackle their top challenges. They did so by:
The roadmap shows what each tech team is working on, and what comes up next. It includes high level information such as objective & key results, and links to the Delibr document which contain all the relevant details and decisions.
The epic board helps the team manage their epics from inception to development, and lets them see relevant information like how many undecided questions there are, how many outstanding ToDos etc., at a glance.
They use their own templates for epics:
All the relevant information in the same document:
PRDs are tightly integrated to Jira:
Collaboration & decision making
People now know what is being worked on and what is going to be worked on.
After the introduction of Delibr, a survey was sent out asking if people thought the communication had improved, and roughly 90% said they though so.
David Božjak, Tech Manager, adds "The process we have now, where we are using Delibr documents to prepare our features and epics, could have been done in Confluence or Google docs. For me, what really makes Delibr stand out, is how easy it is to structure the documents. This is much thanks to the nested bullet structure and the ability to collapse parts of a document. This lets us use the same document from early discovery to the creation of backlog items. Before, we typically split all of this up into numerous documents, presentations, design files and Jira issues."
