Product Management is a very new skill. It is all to often seen as a promotion path from a technical role (frequently web design). We think that is not sufficient, and that communications and being able to bridge the VitalTrinity is essential.
In the early days of a business, you may not need or be able to afford a CPO, in general one only needs one 1 day/week. However you should generally allow for 3-5 days when you are:
Doing a 3-6 month review
In most businesses a CPO is essential and will pay for themselves with increased sales, better tariffing, reduced sales costs etc
Ultimately as the business grows you should have your own CPO. Good CPO's can be hard to find, so it can be better to "grow your own". We can help.
