The move that opened up new doors for me was moving out of an operational role into a project as a subject matter expert. It exposed me to working using Agile and Scrum. It was a big change for me and took me out of my comfort zone. I learned so much and it was this move that is the reason I am currently in the Lead Product Owner role, 9 years later.
The Product Owner is responsible for what work gets prioritised and when it gets completed. It's a rewarding position; if someone asks a PO what do you do, you can fire up one of our many websites and instantly show someone exactly what it is you've been working on and why we did it. A great PO is able to create excellent relationships through building understanding and trust with customers ad stakeholders and my job is to help provide the team with those tools they need to help them be the best version of themselves.
