What I often saw is different power balances in the trifectas - I find it very rare that all 3 roles have the same skills/authority. When it's out of balance, it shows quickle (for example, I've experienced the engineering part being 'stronger', so there was much more focus on technical debt).

Hi James, great article. Do you see and problem in decision making due to the overall responsibility of the product is shared by a group? I could imagine a conflict between 2 of the 3 disciplines which could drag on way to long because there seems no way but reaching consent.

Have you thought about having a trifecta that is being lead by a single "product lead role" that is responsible for the product as a whole?
