Jan 01, 2018
Jori Bell, Product Owner at Spotify
Product Owner at Spotify talks about how you can be successful as a Product Manager without a technical background.
Show Notes
Many companies require Product Managers to have a technical background - whether it be a formal Computer Science degree or experience with writing code. "Over the years I've been self-conscious about my lack of technical background, yet I’ve learned that technical skills aren’t everything when it comes to Product Management." Jori Bell from Spotify breaks down the myth of needing technical skills to be a successful Product Manager. She talks about how you need to understand the types of skills that will make you a successful Product Manager. She also discusses the importance of bringing non-technical value to a team and how to do it, and how you can build trust with a technical team.
