Transform Your Product Team
The Chief Product Officer role is the only role in product management that has access to the board, investors, and to the rest of the C-Suite. Where [a CPO] can add the most value is to be the visionary evangelist and to paint the story of the product vision to get buy-in from the rest of the C-suite and the board, as well as to sell investors on what the organization is going to do.
CPOs Build Product-Led Cultures
Chief Product Officers (CPOs) are visionaries, evangelists, and thought leaders within their company. With the CEO, the CPO sets the company’s vision, and then translates that vision into a holistic product strategy. The Chief Product Officer builds product-led cultures that unify the collective expertise of all disciplines required for great products to win in the market. In doing so, Chief Product Officers synthesize and reshape the DNA of their company.
