In the fast-paced world of technology, where developments and disruptions occur at breakneck speed, there’s a prevailing notion that tech leaders should predominantly focus on strategy, leaving the technical details to their teams. While strategic vision is undeniably crucial, there’s an underemphasized importance of tech leaders being hands-on. Here’s why this approach isn’t just beneficial, but often necessary for success.
The tech world is dynamic, with new tools, frameworks, and methodologies emerging continuously.
While there’s undeniable value in delegation and focusing on strategic directions, tech leaders who maintain a hands-on approach offer their organizations a unique blend of vision and execution. In the constantly evolving realm of technology, this combination is not just desirable but often the key to sustained success and innovation. As the adage goes, “To lead, one must first know how to do.”
