Learn how to align teams as they scale, foster a growth mindset, and build trust in our new guide for engineering leaders. Featuring insights from leaders at Google, Atlassian, VMware, and The New York Times.
While modern engineering leadership exists on a spectrum, in the modern workplace there are two ends: One, with a top-down focus on output and standardization, the other, with a bottom-up focus on individuals. In top-down, leaders focus on standardization of tooling and process and may bring efficiencies, but may result in unhappy teams. The other, according to principal engineer and InVision co-founder Ben Nadel, has leadership focused so much on developer autonomy that they often sacrifice the long-term advantages that come with consistent cross-functional processes.
There is a balance to be had, but it requires work. Unlike new technologies or coding languages, leadership principles are not only timeless, but they’re also one of the key topics discussed with guests across engineering, product, and design on the Design Better Podcast. In this guide, we’ll take a deep dive into the factors that cause teams to be less efficient in modern organizations, and share some practical tips from leaders at Atlassian, Google, and the New York Times on how to overcome them.
