5 Whys is a blog about technical leadership in the software world.

Call for content – what do new team leads need to know on the first day?

About 5 minutes after I posted about eh existence of this blog on twitter, I’ve gotten lots of great feedback (and various little nitpickings) about the content, what I shoudl talk about and things that I might cover.

This is your chance to influence the topics this blog covers : What topics do you think are essential for new team leads to learn if they’ve never done it before?

What tips or tricks would you give them?

What topics would you make sure they learn?

What topics have you learned about leading teams that are not covered in *any* book?

If you don’t own your team, Someone else will

Don’t despair in the face of nitpickers
