Ensure that decision rights between teams/parties are adhered to. Define those rights if they do not exist. Take the lead in resolving conflicts between stakeholders - including leadership - and the technical team. Document rights and roles into a RACI if required.
Facilitate the definition of the project/product backlog, including Epics, features, user stories, and tasks. Ensure the team produces high quality project artifacts, including specifications, process flows, mockups, wireframes, and operational support guides.

Ensure a graceful transition to operations. Minimize technical debt. Balance capacity across multiple projects in parallel.
Manage client expectations; identify and communicate risks; manage and overcome project impediments; serve as the communication pathway between clients, management, leadership, and the project team.
