A Tech Lead or Technical Team Lead or Engineering Lead, is a common role within the software development discipline. This individual is responsible for the overall planning, execution and success of complex software solutions to meet customer’s needs. Over the last years, I have dedicated a great deal of my time to coach the Tech Leads in the Engineering department.

My last session in Regional Scrum gathering Nepal 2018.

    Scrum defines that there are no hierarchies or job titles in the Scrum team, because this often leads to team members becoming passive order takers rather than active collaborators. Your talk would be improved by addressing this issue and supplying arguments and evidence that this approach is wrong.

          Hi Peter,

          Intention of my presentation is not to make or break the existing "roles" of SCRUM team as there are no specific roles exists except PO, SM and Development team. But as we know there should be some stakeholders who are helping team from outside of team such as Architect or solution experts(they are tech leads) in subject matter at most of our cases. Intention of this presentation was to connecting same role to help team sensing when good and bad technical and how to override them by helping team.

          Later in the presentation i will add how to sense the good and bad tech debts, solution to tech debts etc with metrics.

           

          Thanks,

          Mukesh
