I remember this article. I shared the other as I am amazed how anybody is able to successfully do all the things at the PO and PM levels of product development. There are SO many balls to juggle. It seems that if you do any one thing well, something else suffers.
I was interested in opening up the dialog on how we support our PO/PMs. I’m also coming to the point where I feel the line between both becomes almost imperceptible. The task seems herculean, how do you balance it all? Does a single wring-able neck make sense?
Or does the shift need to go more the Modern Agile path and a democratisation of the PO role into the team, but with a PM to focus on the customers, market, product life-cycle etc.? The team becoming more responsible for looking at defining the how and the PM say here is the problem space and this is what we need to solve?
