The article is geared towards a product team but the core message has similarities to any team or organization.  As a leader on a small or large team, hopefully your main goal is the win, for the company, team, product and client.  If you’re a “swooper” or you’ve recently been “swooped” make sure “you’re aligned on the larger questions motivating each of your perspectives”.  To avoid being the “swooper” schedule reviews, keep track of the successes and hold ups to understand where your team is at.  As the “swooped” come up with a solution and bring research to show your thought process and why you disagree, but in the end “the show must go on”, move forward and hopefully learn from the process.
