Developing products using agile frameworks is something you often hear from the startup ecosphere. After transitioning from a fully agile agency career, Martin now works as Chief Product Owner for Wolters Kluwer and steers several agile development teams in line with all challenges this approach has in a corporate environment. We talk about how product development differs from working for a corporation than working for an agency or a startup. Is it better? It is surely a lot different.
