Fractional Product Leadership: Your Step-By-Step Guide

Jason Knight did a guest post Product Growth where he writes about how to become a fractional CPO from 20 interviews.

Key Notes:

Fractional = Consultant on retainer

Charge 40-50% more per day vs employee

Continuous learning journey with context switching

Drive change in ways that full-time employees cannot.

It’s a life of perpetual entrepreneurship of selling & product

Mostly scale ups moving from founder-led but canโ€™t afford fulltime CPO
