#29 Jackie Bavaro (Asana, Google) on having impact and cracking a PM career

Posted byJonny Burch on


Jackie Bavaro was most recently Head of Product Management for eight years at Asana, the well-loved work management software, where she joined pre-launch as the first PM. During her tenure, she grew the PM team to over twenty amazing people, helped Asana's go from $0 to more than $100 million in annual recurring revenue, and launched Asana's associate product manager program.

Jackie has since written two fantastic books on PM careers - 'Cracking the PM career' and 'Cracking the PM interview'.

In this episode we talk about Jackie's growth as a PM at Asana, defining impact in role, working with founders, navigating feedback and her 'Do, Try, Consider' framework which we've now implemented at Progression.
