Top tips for building a great tech team.

Updated: Nov 24

One of the hardest things about growing a business for a CEO is growing the technology team of the right people at the right time.


Following are top tips for a CEO to build and keep a great tech team for the business's success.

  1. Hire a full-time CTO to have the proper focus on building the tech culture, team, processes, and technology.

  2. Focus on solving one problem at a time; this will keep the team agile so they can respond faster to customer and market feedback.

  3. Make sure technology leadership involves the team on how and what to build.

  4. Communicate the strengths of the tech talent in your organization.

  5. Make sure experienced technology leads stay motivated to stay and thrive.

  6. An effective communication structure facilitates a shared understanding of goals and processes.

  7. Please do not be stingy with tech tools. They can make a significant difference.

  8. Think hard about tech talent career development. It’s expensive (both in terms of time and money) to hire great developers and keep them.
