One of the key things that you need to align the ownership of is that of problems and the solutions to those problems. If the problems and solutions are all owned by the same person or team then you wind up with everything aligned. You solve the problems because they are causing you pain.

A problem arrises, however, when you only get to own the problems, but not the solutions.

You wind up with a disconnect in the feedback loop. No amount of work you do can provide the solutions to the problems you may face.

It’s a constant fear of mine–not being able to fix my own problems.
