I am working in a tech start up, boss is a non technical CEO, lately we are working on trying to make the product scalable, without performance being affected. I think that he is trying to help from making suggestions, but some of them don't seem to make sense when I end up investigating further. Anyway, since he is adamant about doing things that way, we are forced to take this into account when tackling the problem since no is not really an answer.
I care about the product, and I wish my boss would not intervene too much since we may end up executing wrongly, with me then getting blamed for it from being the product manager - what is the best approach?
My boss has got to the point of paranoia, right now we are arguing about whether Google page speed insight tool is a good tool to measure performance - it isn't. After checking well established companies product scores on it i.e. Facebook, they all seem to score badly on it as well. Yet he thinks that this is an indicator of performance and is expecting us to score highly on it. I am stressed out because I think the score is based on loading everything asynchronously which is the same as loading all of the JS/CSS files at the start. i.e. the score doesn't mean much.
