A one-month program to setup your team for success
It is not enough for a team to have skilled individuals. In order for technical teams to excel, there are many factors that need to align. The day-to-day friction needs to be as close to zero as possible.
Architectures, libraries choices, PR reviews, branching strategy, CI pipelines, deployments, release management, automated tests, hotfixes, feature flags, rollbacks, ticket management, design handovers, business goals changes, documentation.
All these topics are part of what I call “meta-development” and they are usually decided as after-thoughts because they don't directly provide value to the end users. However, they are the elements that introduce friction on a daily basis, making your team slower and ultimately losing their motivation to ship.
Young teams usually start experiencing this after shipping the MVP or when they start hiring more engineers to accelerate the development of the product v1. What was sacrificed for the sake of speed now creates all kinds of symptoms. Slow onboarding times, regressions, user complaints, decreased performance, lower energy levels, lack of visibility about production issues, single points of failure in the team, architectures not being respected, and many more.
Is your team in a similar spot? You are at the right place, keep reading.
After bootstrapping 50+ products on a wide range of markets and building 10+ technical teams from the ground up, I have consolidated all my learnings into a one-month program where I will lead your team to success.
This program consists of three steps:
- 1. Understand your business, build relationships with your team, and identify the friction points (~1 week).
- 2. Cooperate with your team to deliver an autonomous system for developers to work within for the next year of growth (~2 weeks).
- 3. Apply the designed system, assess its efficacity, and share the knowledge with the team (~1 week).
While I will request meeting some of the key players across your company to ensure a successful outcome, nobody will need to spend more than ~1 hour per week. This means you can keep your business operating as usual and bringing direct value to your end users at the same time you get ready for the next milestone.
