Jon Humble

My name is Jon and I have been working in IT now for 17 years, mostly as an engineer but latterly as a manager. For the past 3 years I have been working for CA Technologies.

As PO Proxy for CA, I participate in two projects, both of which are cross-functional and across multiple geographies. My primary concern is ensuring good rapport and communication between Product Management and Engineering. I am also keen that the perception of the team is good with project stakeholders and I need to also have an understanding the strategic goal of the projects, their place in CA's overall strategy and have a high level understanding of their technical makeup and target market.
