The extended track of the Effective Tech Leader program is based on the same principles as the Supportive Tech Leader Short Track, but develops it into a fuller program, with several feedback points along the way, therefore enabling the program to be fuller, more effective, and more adjusted to the specific needs of course participants. An effective Tech Leader needs to combine technical and managerial skills in order to best perform his or her work.
However, since the vast majority of tech leaders are selected based on their technical know-how, there are often significant gaps in the managerial part of the skill-set. While most tech leaders try to make do, using trial and error, or basing their approach on their own experience with their own, previous leaders, this can lead to the perpetuation of ineffective, or even potentially harmful solutions. As such, a specific training designed for tech leaders, devoted to managerial skills, but with the specific limitations of their position in mind, should be a primary requirement for anyone promoted to such a position.
While there is rarely time for an extended program, a short two-day introduction to the basic skills and concepts is an effective solution to the situation. As such, we can offer the Short Track version of the Supportive Tech Leader program, just for this purpose.
Unlike the Short Track, which is set up as a single two-day workshop, the Extended Track is developed as a set of meetings, with a 3-5 week break between each workshop, enabling participants to practically test their new skills and report on how well they have worked for them, what issues they have had, etc.
