As software engineers, we are used to working within the bounded context of our team. This can make our day to day easy to manage. Our work is drawn out of a project management tool and the meetings we have are limited to agile ceremonies. Right?
Step into a staff plus role, where you find yourself working across teams or departments and leading initiatives that span much longer than the typical agile sprint. You have ambitious goals, but how do you adapt to this change? How do you take ownership of your time? How do you make sure you are spending the time on what you need to?
In this talk, we will start by looking at: How the expectations of your role imply changes in how you manage your time, strategies to avoid feeling like you are being stretched in multiple directions, understanding how you work best, and identifying which strategies apply to you.
