More than one product manager across a single platform?

Good morning!

I'm looking for advice - has anyone seen or experienced examples of how to coordinate and prioritize multiple product backlogs across a single technology stack, e.g. a web site powered by a single CMS? We need to get to place where we can iteratively improve more than one product/customer journey simultaneously. I'm trying to vision the sorts of people, processes and tools needed for this to work. I'd really appreciate any experience others in the community have of seeing this sort of thing succeed (or fail!)

Many thanks in advance,

If these products share a technology stack, might they then have dependencies which must be resolved for integrated increments to be produced? If so, I'd suggest that's where your vision should be. In Scrum, teams ought to be encouraged to self-organize around such things, and their processes and tools ought to facilitate that very integration. Remember that the only real measure of progress is the incremental release of working product.
