The 2021 survey is now open

As many of you reading this may already know, last year we published the 2020 Australia & New Zealand Product Teams Report, the first piece of research of its kind to look at how product teams work together in tech companies.

The aim of the research was to get deeper insights into what kinds of rituals and processes teams have, what works, and what doesn’t. We were aiming to more holistically answer the question we get asked most at Cogent: “How do other people do it?”

In a nutshell, we wanted to learn what ingredients create a happy and high-performing product team, and share how you could use these to positively impact your own team.

We surveyed developers, product managers, designers and tech leaders from over 50 different organisations, and turned the findings into a no-BS resource with actionable insights you could use to improve the way your own team works. Since then, over 250 of you have downloaded the report.

Now, we’re running the survey again. I think we can all agree that a lot has changed in the way we work – individually and as part of teams – over the past year. Through the multiple lockdowns, completely remote working has become the norm and we want to share insights with you as to how teams are navigating it, successfully or not.

Naturally, Cogent people have had a lot of experience with this over the past year working 100% remotely with businesses at all stages of growth, from fast-growing startups to global tech leaders like Square and Afterpay. But we want to hear from you – the founders, designers, developers, product managers and anyone who works in tech teams. You could be working on an app, website, marketplace, SaaS tool or something else.

It takes around 15min and by contributing, you’ll get first access to the report before it’s released more publicly, around October 2021. Naturally, all information is kept completely anonymous and aggregated at a group level. We’re interested in common trends and themes, not what one specific team does.

So, if you’re a founder, designer, developer, product manager or anyone who works in tech, we’d love to hear from you.

We’d also love for you to help spread the word with your network and colleagues.

More responses = better data. Please share the love.
