One of the biggest intimidations is not knowing the steps or process. That lack of understanding of, "How does it work? How long does this take?" That can be really scary. Bruce Kirsch, Founder & CEO, REFM
That's Bruce Kirsch. He made the leap to build his dream when he launched Valuate, a web-based commercial real estate tool.
For Bruce, the biggest challenge of building a software product wasn't finding others who believed in his idea. It wasn't doing market research. It wasn't even finding financial backing.
It was finding a team that he trusted.
Finding, hiring and working with a technical team can be overwhelming, even for seasoned entrepreneurs and executives.Let's explore common areas of miscommunication between technical and non-technical team members, using the universally loved format: the checklist.
JUST A MINUTE...
Is this checklist for me?
- Does the thought of holding a CTO or Technical Director role make your palms sweaty?
- Are you more at home in PowerPoint than an IDE?
- Did you just Google "IDE"?
If you answered "yes" to any of the above, this checklist is for you.
This checklist is by no means exhaustive. It is, however, a starting point to faciliate an open conversation with your team. Have a question you think should be included? Tell us at @colabcoop.
