I am a product manager at eTranzact International where my team and I build payment solutions, solving real problems for businesses and consumers. Building a great software solution requires a great tech team led by an awesome tech lead. But a crucial part of this process is how best to partner with the tech lead to bring to life a solution that solves your problems. In this course, we are going to explore partnering with the tech lead to create those great solutions. Some of the major topic that we will cover include aligning the tech lead to the customers and their fundamental problems, the importance of aligning your tech lead to the product's vision, mission, and strategy, how strategy connects with the roadmap to build the right solution, determining the API needs of the product, and creating the right naming convention to ensure perfect synergy among the team. By the end of this course, you will be able to form a strong partnership with your tech lead, helping you create a solution that can become a sustainable business. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with how to discover customer problems, defining your vision, mission, and strategy from the core user problems, designing a roadmap, and a basic understanding of APIs.
