Effective Tech Leader

Code: tech-leader
Category: Tech lead and team lead
Format: 50% lecture / 50% workshop
Duration: 2 days
Target audience: developers
Enrollment: Groups, companies
Venue: Client's office.

A good Tech Leader, while having a lot in common with a Team Leader, concentrates more on technical decisions and convincing the team to the solutions they chose, negotiating technical details with the client and supporting the technical development of other members of the development team.

Unfortunately, while tech leaders have great technical skills, they often lack the soft skills which would make their jobs much easier. This workshop was developed to correct this situation.

It's all about the content.

  • Preparatory training for people soon to be promoted to the position of teach leader or similar
  • Assistance for informal tech leaders in the company and for people with leadership potential
  • A good support training for people already working as tech leaders in the company
