Functional teams allow more efficient delivery within functions but they aren't great for innovation and new work. Product teams allow more efficient delivery of new work but they require generalists instead of specialists to keep team sizes manageable. There is usually one, or two people if you are lucky, who look after research, design, content, and more. One person is very rarely skilled in all of these different skills. Are we encouraging people to stretch or are we setting people up for failure? Are people more valuable as generalists or as specialists? And how do people grow and learn when they are removed from their function?
