For whatever role is its, youll likely need to be able to answer technical questions about the stack/solution. If you're not comfortable getting asked those questions with solid answers, then a non-technical role would be more fitting.

Just made a similar switch coming from D strategy and ops practice. TPM requires an overall understanding of EA rather than minute details of each component. Surprisingly my interviews were focused on TOM, driving desired outcomes, experience working with C suite execs , cross functional collaboration and how comfortable i am to talk to business n dev alike.

Note, this is PM-T, not TPM. Very very different

PwC Fish - I’m considering where to have a baby, either the US or Austria (I currently live in Vienna, but thinking to move home to the US). What’s maternity leave in the US? How much does it actually cost to have a baby with our insurance? In Austria, I can take up to a year off, but only receive €2,000 a month from the government 😳… I don’t think there is any paid leave through the firm. Pregnancy through birth costs are pretty covered by insurance though. Would love your thoughts!
