About this Product Owner

I’m Simon Marshall and I’m a digital expert with extensive Project Management and Product Owner experience. I’ve been involved in digital development for over 17 years and I’m passionate about what I do.

Through this blog I hope to talk about some of the day to day issues I face and give my opinion on project management issues. I also want to share some of the useful information I find.

My career started in print design after gaining a degree in Graphic Design in 1994. Even then, with very early Apple Mac’s, my interest in computing, websites and software was strong. Eventually I couldn’t resist any longer and my career moved into online design. Inevitably I moved up the chain and started to take on the management of work.

I worked for a company that specialised in software applications and tools with a connection to education, competency and assessment for 17 years. More recently I have moved on to work for a high street building society as a Digital Product Owner, where I am part of a team involved in the digital transformation of the organisation.

I have extensive experience of Agile Scrum, but I am am also a qualified Prince 2 Practitioner. This allows me to utilise the best of both systems in my project delivery.

If you find my articles interesting or useful, please share them with others. If you want to contact me directly you can email me. I am also on Twitter, although you need to tolerate my Middlesbrough FC rants if you follow me.
