Do you know what it takes to be a top tech CEO? In short, top tech leaders need a clear vision, a sharp focus on execution and consistency amid business pressures and challenges. A tech leader also bridges the gap between business and engineering, guiding the team to achieve a shared goal. Below are a few other abilities one needs to be considered a leading technology executive today:
Ability to solve complex engineering problems
Apart from managing people, DevOps tech leaders solve challenging engineering problems while seeing the bigger picture. They also deeply understand how their decisions impact the team’s success, and ultimately, the IT business.
Apple’s Tim Cook, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Adobe’s Shantanu Narayan,and Google’s Sundar Pichai are great examples of the world’s most influential and respectable CEOs. And they have a few things in common; they are effective listeners, savvy data analysts, and have a strong instinct that makes them successful business people.
Use of robots to reduce the labor strains
Top CEOs are passionate about seeking new methods to reduce their workload efficiently, while at the same time, trying as much as possible to improve how well they meet and satisfy the demand for their products and services. While labor shortages are the highlight of the economy during the pandemic, robots are quickly filling this gap with better outcomes, too.
