James Mayes, CEO @ Mind the Product. Pt. 2

PM has changed.

10 years ago, PM was newer. PMs were in their 20s-30s. When they came together, they shared lessons in how to prioritize, how to manage a roadmap and a backlog.

There’s been a change in level.

Now, they’ve grown up. They’re in their 30s-40s.

They have a mortgage. And kids. The function is growing up with them. Now, they’re more senior. We have Chief Product Officers now!

They’re interested in how to prioritize across a portfolio of products. How to measure a PM on their team. How to help a poorly performing PMs.

The entire profession has risen with them.
