    I am sorry to say but according my experience single product model is not very good idea. See this post for details:

    Still I would love to hear from companies that have have successfully implemented this model and how it is working for them (as all models are broken but some are useful).

      Thanks so much for the link. What I’ve found that works is a Product Ownership Team, or Product Management Team. This team works together to provide what needs to be prioritized and worked on. Having a one man do it is sometimes way too much responsibility and (liability).
