People, Product And Processes
While there are many great resources and self education tools available for product and business development, where most important ones are captured in this framework as well. Much less resources and focus are available to understanding challenges of building a committed team and growing a scaling organization - especially from globally neutral perspective.
Yet, if asked from professional investors and most professionals in business, pretty much all agree that while business is about people, products and processes - the team ranks as very important, - if not the most important factor.
