Hello hello and welcome to issue #26 👋🏾
Every single time I say to people that managers should focus on the team and avoid being the person making technical decisions and building I get some version of: “But in <Acme Corp> the managers aren’t involved and have become unable to guide people technically and be responsible for the technical output of the org.”
This is definitely a danger, abdicating control and giving autonomy back to the team comes with perks, but also challenges. One of them is remaining technical when we aren’t doing most of the work. So I dedicated this week’s content to that and how to think about staying technical. Hope you like it. If you do, as always, remember to share it and let me know!
