Chief product officer

Chief product officer (CPO), sometimes designated as chief production officer, is a corporate title referring to an chief executive officer.


A CPO is responsible for all product-related matters. Usually includes product conception and development, production in general, innovation, project management and product management. In many IT/telecommunications companies, this position includes release management and production. In small and mid-sized companies the CPO typically also play the role of the COO. They typically work on the product strategy based upon the goals set by the CEO or board members.


A chief product officer may sometimes serve as a chief marketing officer by involving themselves in marketing and advertising product benefits to the consumers. The CPO can both design or modify the product, so that it reaches the customer's satisfaction.
