How can you measure the growth of your technical team?
Let’s be honest, it’s hard. Every individual feels differently and wants to do something different, but as their manager, you are in charge to make sure they stay motivated and excited about the work they do.
How can you keep up with a big team in this day and age where everything is dynamic and too fast to keep track?
At this point I’m sure some ideas come to your mind and you’ve probably tried 1:1 meetings, hackathons, dev talks or mentoring sessions; but these approaches very often start with a hype and slowly fade away. In the beginning people feel they’re improving, it’s new and it is in fact something nice… but you may also be in charge of many projects and the direction of the company as a whole. It is important to keep your people happy, but it is as important to make sure the company delivers the projects in time, maintain the quality of the code and keep updating their technologies.
The more you turn your attention to the new services out there that can speed up your deployments, those 1:1 meetings start to be a drag… It’s not that you don’t want to do it, but it seems way less effective and more time consuming.
Obviously, you will have people to help you, either they are the team leaders, or project managers that will report back to you. But how can you make precise decisions if the bridge between you and the people you lead is getting bigger and bigger?
Flairs.ai platform allows you to understand your team and what they want to do, what they have been working on recently, what technologies they’re engaged with and in which projects.
Furthermore, in one simple graph you can understand the colleagues engagement in their current projects: A comparison between all tech available in the project vs.the tech they know and are using vs. the tech they want to learn and are using. In a glance you can tell if the teammate is progressing towards their goals.
We don’t want to get the human element away. We ultimately want to help you as a leader to be closer to your team and we know the 1:1 meetings and feedback sessions will help. But now you know exactly who to ask:
Leading a development team or being a CTO is not an easy task and we know it. Flairs.ai is here to help with insights platform for technical leaders and make your job easier so that you can keep the devs happy, technologies up to date and the company thriving.
These and more features you can find in our Product Deck.
