Level Up delivers a curated newsletter for leaders in tech. A project by Ideal for busy people such as Tech Leads, Engineering Managers, VPs of Engineering, CTOs and more.

As the year draws to an end, it’s a great time for you as a leader to celebrate all that your team has accomplished, what you have learned, and consider where are opportunities to improve and get even better. It’s also an important part to recognise how you’ve influenced your teams to enable them. Start thinking about what you’d like to achieve in 2020. It’s a great time to set aside time for reflecting, planning before the holiday season arrives.
I hope you enjoy this week’s content. If you find it useful, please forward to someone else and send me feedback.

Get ahead. Reflect on your year. Start planning your 2020.

Me: "Team let's do an ice breaker. Tell me which type of cookie 🍪 you would be and why"
Team member: "I would be a session cookie because I store information."
Definitely in agreement in this one.

How to scale agile: make systemic changes to management, finance, procurement, governance, strategy, skills, language, culture. How not to scale agile: use a framework.
This is a great quote! 😊
