“When building a technical team that is tasked with designing, building and delivering products that determine the success of their company, it’s critical to make sure every member, at every level, is fully invested and understands the importance of their individual roles. Individuals must be given the ability to own their work and must be held accountable for the outcome.

Ownership starts at the highest levels where the vision must be articulated in such a way that everyone in the organization understands and can repeat it. Executive technical leaders are responsible for creating and communicating the product vision along with many other tasks.

The vision is the high-level product definition that gets further clarified as teams, specifications and project plans are created and individual tasks are assigned.

Every technical team member must have the ability to make critical decisions as they relate to their assigned tasks. When this happens, the team member becomes invested in the success of their work. They will own these decisions and they will be held accountable for them.

Creating individual ownership and enforcing accountability is a great way to build a strong technical team, a winning product, and a successful company.”
