Hi Joady,

Does the title "Chief Product Officer" mean that WMF intends to revert the
name of the Audiences department back to the Product department?

"On time and budget" is a goal that can be very difficult to achieve with
complex engineering projects that often encounter surprises. WMF has
experience with this with VisualEditor. I suggest that it would be good to
set realistic expectations for candidates.

Thanks,

Pine

If you allow yourself to think that on time and on budget are optional,
then you will certainly not get them. I would expect the WMF to aspire to

One would certainly aspire to be on time and on budget, but the reality of
complex engineering projects is that surprises happen. Developing a new
product isn't like building products on an assembly line where time and
cost are relatively easy to predict.

I think that looking for managers who are generally on time and on budget
with their projects is a good thing, but I also think that we should have
realistic expectations.

To reassure, no the Audiences department name is not changing its name
again, they only just created it :)

In doing recruiting, the Chief Product Officer is a better understood title
