Congratulations! You’re now a Tech Lead? But what are you supposed to do differently than when you were just a software engineer? Many companies do not prepare people for the transition into a new role, that demands new skills. In this course, we will explore the definition of a Tech Lead, understand the different skills required to be an effective Tech Lead and learn some tools that you can immediately apply in your own team.

This course focuses on technical leadership skills through discussion, theory and practical exercises.

  • A better understanding of what the Tech Lead role is
  • Why the Tech Lead role is necessary
  • What makes the Tech Lead unique from other leadership roles
  • Tools that make a Tech Lead more effective

  • Why Cross Functional Requirements matter
  • How to identify and manage Cross Functional Requirements
