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.
