Managing and Developing a Tech Team

Tuesday 20 February 2018
6:30pm

The Thomas Cubitt, 44 Elizabeth Street, London, SW1W 9PA

Members Only

Technology is intrinsic to so many businesses now; whether you’re a technology business or not, the chances are you will have to manage a technology team or employee. Join us to discuss with fellow members how best to manage and develop a tech team.


If you’re at the stage where you use or develop your own technology, and/or think it might be time to bring outsourced work in-house, or, if you’re starting to build a technology team in your business, this dinner is for you.

Recruiting for technology roles can be a daunting process, especially if you’re just starting out. Establishing the skills you need, finding individuals who fit your requirements, and working out a recruitment process that will both test these skills as well as whether they’re a fit for the business takes time. Once they’re in, managing technology projects can require very different techniques and management skills in order to enable creativity whilst still delivering to project deadlines.

This dinner will look to explore, but will not be limited to:

  • What to bring in-house and what to outsource
  • Transferring external development in-house
  • Recruiting for technology roles: sourcing and the recruitment process
  • Management tactics and techniques for employees in tech roles
  • Incentivising employees in tech roles
  • Taking on a CTO
  • How to integrate technology teams with the business
