About This Class Series

The CTO curriculum focuses on the three core aspects of being a technology leader: People, Process, and Technology. At the end of the two-class series, you will have developed the skills and frameworks necessary to be a better CTO.

The first lesson, People, tackles the necessary skills required to evaluate, build, manage, and retain the best possible team and talent with available resources.

The second lesson addresses Process and Technology. The Process issues consist of managing complexity (including features, bugs, changes, and crisis management), making decisions, and managing risk across a variety of environments ranging from business, to creative, to technology. The key Technology issues addressed include technical debt, technology agnostic design, capacity planning, and overall scalability.
