I picked up the 5 Whys blog a short while ago around the time there was talk of an opening for technical lead at my company. A recent post led me to this letter written to upper management describing solutions to problems faced at one particular software house.
It hit a nerve; There were similarities.
I sit here now planning and plotting our way out, as I see it, for my company having successfully got the technical lead role. At times I’m enthused at the prospect of where we could be but then brought back to reality when I see the gap between that point and where we are now. It’s a journey we must take and I’m grateful to have been given the opportunity to be at the centre of it.
