I am still overwhelmed at the way people get addicted to evolve only along a continuous line. They think about stability and don't realize how unstable it is.
Someone I know got invited to become a product owner. This is nice, right? Well... I would say it depends. This person then tried to figure out what is a product owner in the mind of those requiring for such a job to be done.
And then the puzzling part came. Looked like they needed a scrum master. And then it looked like the job required a team leader. And somewhere in the middle it looked like the department needed a project manager.
Well... to keep a long story short, that company needed someone to be a team leader with a broadened view of the involved business, who was also able to do project management.
Why? Because the actual team leader is still too operational and the project manager is not as agile as he could be. Because they don't know better. Nor have the necessary space or opportunity to learn. And... in my modest opinion: because their own manager does not have what is necessary to take the decision he should: do a real mindset change and get a product owner to do his job and a technical team leader to do his job and a scrum master to do his job. Instead of making the usual salad mix of people's tasks, roles and scopes of responsibility.
Now we could argue on whether this person lacks the knowledge, mindset, the courage or the actual ability to do such a transformation due to some other higher management pressures.
I'll leave it to your imagination. What happens is: these people keep "evolving" along a straight continuous line.
