That is the fifth a part of a six half sequence investigating how generative AI productiveness instruments geared toward builders, like Github Copilot, ChatGPT and Amazon CodeWhisperer may affect the construction of total product engineering groups.
In Half 4, we explored:
- The alternatives Generative AI presents for organisations throughout an financial downturn and diminished enterprise capital funding.
- Three situations for firms to reap the benefits of greater developer productiveness with the introduction of Generative AI productiveness instruments: investing for development, cost-cutting, and sustaining present budgets
- Hypothetical penalties and challenges, like drastically altered staff compositions and what these modifications might imply for product managers and engineers.
There are at all times winners and losers when the enterprise atmosphere modifications quickly. To this point, we’ve been discussing the advantages and the attainable affect of Generative AI instruments from the angle of a hypothetical mannequin, however we’ve glossed over a variety of unstated caveats.
In actuality, even when the advantages do play out as I’ve described prior to now 4 articles, we’re unlikely to see the structural modifications we’ve been discussing occur in a single day.

Sadly, that additionally implies that many organisations received’t see the profit that these modifications might deliver as rapidly as they in all probability ought to.
Having thought-about how groups may profit from these AI coding instruments, I’d now like to show my consideration to how they might affect several types of organisation; newly minted startups with heady development plans, smaller however steady firms with product…
