With a 74 strong development team, we’ve found it increasingly difficult to keep this animal fed with the right things. So we’ve made a significant investment into a dedicated product management team of 5 people.
These people are the link between you and the software development team. More than that, we now no longer have an overall development manager, the development team has been broken in to 7 separate teams and these teams now report directly into the product managers. We’ve essentially built 7 small, nimble development teams instead of one big and unwieldy one. Many of you may have already noticed the benefits of this, we certainly have, we’re building things loads faster!
Graham Thorpe (Frog Learn and Frog Developer Platform)
Graham was a customer of Frog before he joined us and so his approach is very much based on the schools point of view. He regularly meets customers through our Meet, Share and learn events to keep himself abreast of what the teachers, techies and partner need from Frog.
Askhar Ali (Frog Learn)
Ashkar works alongside Graham on Frog Learn, with a particular focus around the modules within Frog Learn, such as Frog Feedback and Frog Parent.
Ramsey Al-Chalaby (Frog Progress)
Ramsey is currently looking after the new Frog Progress product, a brand new development set to launch in early 2015.
All these gentlemen are managed by our two Product Directors, Mike Wilkinson and Steve Holt, who both have a very hands on role, working directly with customers and defining the products that we build. Both Mike and Steve are members of the Frog Board and have a huge amount of influence over the business.
