Continuing My Sales Tech Career: A Promotion and Professional Development


It was a natural next step from my initial role and it involves more relationship-building with potential and current clients, along with collaborating with the Sales Director on the direction for company growth. According to “The Scrum Guide” by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland (a workbook I’d soon be seeing a whole lot of), this theory “employs an iterative, incremental approach to optimize predictability and to control risk.” Knowing that our PMs rely heavily on this theory for backlog management, I learned more about my training options. The course allowed me to get hands-on practice creating a product vision, gave me tips on how to prioritize key backlog items, and overall, provided a ton of tools I’d need to be an effective PM. After I “graduated” from the course, I put that cute little badge on my LinkedIn profile and received all the street creds deserving of an official CSPO. Outside of that awesome badge, I came back to Caktus that Monday knowing that I had more to offer than I had before, and it was all thanks to a team that encouraged me to develop skills not necessarily required for my current role.
