Over the past decade engineers have found their roles evolving to be more high profile and mission critical. The role of engineering leader can vary dramatically from company to company, industry to industry as can the path toward leadership. Sometimes planned but more often forced due to a gap or sudden growth, engineers can find themselves in a leadership role for which they have little or no training. During the session’s first hour four engineering leaders will share their personal journeys of transitioning from engineer to leadership. The group will discuss strategies to navigate this critical role and tools to make engineering leaders successful, which in turn leads to happy, high performing teams. During the second hour we’ll break up into small groups to share personal stories, ask questions and get feedback from the panel participants.
