Product development should be a team sport, but occasionally you need that certain someone to act as a sherpa. Hopefully, that person is not afraid of heavy lifting. Knows when to lead and how to follow. Builds consensus on how to assess effort, risk, and reward. They are fantastic at inspiring teammates. They are masterful at aligning stakeholders and prioritizing. They also appreciate the unique challenges ahead while humbly knowing they have not mastered all of the lessons from the past.
