What is a Technical Product Sherpa and why you should hire one.
Product ownership 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 quickly asses effort, risk, and reward. They are fantastic at maximizing and managing resources while recognizing strengths and weaknesses. They always make others around them better. Appreciate the unique challenges ahead while humbly knowing they have not mastered all of the lessons of the past. They see value beyond the obvious and never leave anyone behind while always eating and speaking last.
