Andy Ford, Product Owner, knew that it was time to change careers, but he had become comfortable in his accounting career and found he enjoyed the people more than the work.
Ford has always been very passionate about innovation, and this led him to the technology field, but he is not sure if he would have made the move with a different support system in place. The manager he worked for as an accountant created a supportive environment that helped Ford feel more comfortable with the decision to take on a new challenging career.
Any change of career is scary, but Ford found it has been worthwhile. The product owner felt many of the things he enjoyed and excelled at aren’t important to a career in accounting. According to Ford, “If I didn’t at least try this, I would probably regret it.”
