Understand how business success is measured at your current company

Understand how business success is measured at your current company

Not all success measures for companies are financial and they can be changing as companies evolve and mature. 

As a developer, you would like to think the elegance of your code is what matters the most to your company, but it is likely not.

Leverage data effectively

Developers are analytical and understand the importance of backing their findings and solutions with data points. 

If you think about improving the response time for an application, you think in numbers, obtain current baseline and come up with improvement in Milliseconds. A CEOneeds to first obtain the current baseline and then decide what is the improvement that she needs to achieve. As a developer, think about how this relates to the success metrics of the company.

Learn to delegate

Delegating effectively means achieving a better outcome for the company. Not every bug has to be fixed by you, not every feature has to be developed by you and not every technical design has to be approved by you. 

By learning to let go a little bit and also sharing the work and knowledge with your peers, you will stop being the bottleneck and everything will move faster.

Be obsessed with continuous improvement

Some CEOs do better than others in taking risks and being aggressive with their goals, but they all share this common characteristic, to be better than present, regardless of their appetite for risk.

Developers and many of us who work in technology share this characteristic too, which is why technology is always advancing and making our lives easier and better. You can bring this characteristic to your day-to-day work; when you see an inefficiency in a system or a process or code, make it your job to improve it.

Bring positive energy

Every good CEO knows that she is not just responsible for the company, but she is also responsible for the employees, too. They want to bring this positive energy which will set the tone for the environment. 

Someone can be an extrovert without a positive energy or she can be an introvert with a positive energy. This is an important thing to remember as most developers I know tend to be introverts, the quiet ones who would rather keep a low profile

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
