Getting the most from your Tech Teams
⚡️ Getting the most from your Tech Teams ⚡️
How to build shared understanding and efficient processes into your product development. Build better connections between those with the vision and those who build product.
When a new technical project starts it’s important for everyone to get on the same page so your technical team can effectively help carry out your vision.
We’re all starting from different places of understanding, experience and technical know-how, so how do we work and communicate effectively?
This short workshop will help you understand exactly how to get the most from your technical teams - and more importantly, achieve the outcomes you need… fast!
- Create a shared understanding between everyone on the team, and find ways to continue to learn together. Avoid miscommunication and a lack of synergy.
- Scope and prioritise the work which brings you the most value. Avoid unfocused efforts, wasted resources an a failure to achieve goals.
- Define ways of working which leverage the expertise of everyone on the team and lead to continuous improvement. Remove impediments to innovation and utilise the team to its fullest.
- Work with distributed teams efficiently - and leverage a global market of talent. Sidestep cultural misunderstandings and learn how to exploit diverse perspectives.
