Brendan Marsh

Agile, Product & Organisational Coach @ Organa

Outgrowing the PO role @ Spotify

Why the PO role must transcend its humble Agile beginnings
I tell the story of my journey from being a tactically minded PO, eventually landing the role at Spotify, to becoming a Product Manager and realising how much I didn’t know about leading a product. It’s also about how Spotify changed the role from PO to PM in order to push the notion that PMs should focus more on product strategy.
