I am shaping up my first ShapeUp project I find myself in a position where the project that is shaped requires a large amount of a Front End resource and a small amount of a Back End resource. (My team is 2 FE and 2 BE resources) I’ve heard that my Job as Product Manager is to “keep them busy”. I am unclear on how to handle these situations.
What do I do with the developer’s extra time?
Am I shaping up projects that aren’t meaty enough?
Am I gauging my team by the wrong metrics - output vs. outcomes?
Currently I find bugs to work on but that feels misaligned with the ShapeUp system to fill out a sprint.
Context: I am trying to migrate my team to a ShapeUp mentality so these first project wins are crucial.
