Question of the Week: Can I have a Proxy PO Work with the Team?

Having a proxy PO can create more problems than it solves since one of the primary benefits of a dedicated PO is to shorten the decision-making time for the development team. If the proxy PO is not empowered to make decisions, the role can quickly become a buffer to the real Product Owner. If this occurs, having a proxy PO can quickly become an antipattern. A healthy alternative is to introduce the role of the Chief Product Owner to work with a Product Owner. This is more than a choice of words because both roles are entitled to make decisions in accordance to their Scope.
