Setting and prioritizing goals as a principal engineer

  • Business and product strategy. As a principal engineer, it’s important to understand the overall strategy for your group and what you can do to support the goals it’s trying to achieve.
  • Team needs. Although you’re not part of a specific team, you’ll find yourself working with many teams across the business to achieve your goals. To prioritize effectively, identify the needs of the teams you work with most closely. 
  • Engineering org needs. Are there problems within the org that you could help with? Look out for initiatives that particularly interest you or that could help you develop some of your growth areas.
  • Personal goals. Consider your personal goals. Identify your strengths, goals you haven’t yet achieved, and areas you might need to improve, and incorporate feedback you’ve received from your manager and peers.

Prioritize by risk

Prioritize by identifying risks associated with each of your inputs. Within the business and product strategy, some examples of these risks could be:

  • Financial risks or strategic risks.
  • Technological risks: the business may have taken on complex projects, or started to explore a new problem space.
  • Operational and team risks: look out for teams without enough engineering support to achieve their goals, where your help might be incredibly valuable.

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!

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!

Giovanna Scalzone
