Technical Leadership Matters

I've been privileged to work with talented engineering teams for over forty years. They have varied from startups to large international companies. In this talk, I discuss key lessons which I learned from great and terrible technical leaders.

We look at the many hats of a CTO - Engineering Lead, Engineering Director, Product Owner, Technical Visionary, R&D Director, Chief Entrepreneur, Playing Coach, Chief Scientist, Distinguished Engineer, Board Member, Community Leader. We discuss the essential qualities of technical leadership. Why the Vision thing is an essential feature of a good CTO. The importance of your global technical network.
