  • Identify and mitigate potential risks, continuously seek workflow improvements, and guide the teams in presenting solutions when obstacles arise.
  • Drive the team towards metrics such as lead time, performance, and quality, and keep these metrics top of mind in planning releases and retrospectives.
  • Encourage freedom in problem-solving and technical choices.
  • Ensure the team has the necessary skills to fulfill their mission and guide them in applying the technological strategy to their solutions.
  • Promote team participation in craft communities.
  • Stay up to date with industry trends in product development and technology.
