A deep dive with five Technical Program Managers (TPM) on what the role is, how it evolved, and how engineers and managers can benefit from working with TPMs.

Wondering how companies are solving having multiple backlogs and cross-team projects. We've tackled the problem of team backlog, very good if you ask. But the topics like GDPR are always in vain because of the lack of understanding of priority within the team and stakeholders.
How other companies are approaching this?
Having being a TPM leader for a few years, I recently moved into Engineering manager role and this resonates so well with me. Thanks for putting it together. I shared with my TPM team here as well.
came here for Trusted Platform Modules, stayed for the insights ;-)
I think the Venn diagram is misleading. The 'T' part of TPM is critical and to not have the TPM shown in the Engineering circle, leads to the incorrect view that TPMs are mostly concerned with non technical. I view TPMs as being an overlap between Senior Staff Eng and PM.
