Engineering Strategy Template
Duplicate this Notion Template and start your Engineering Strategy
I created this Notion Template for the Engineering Strategy Model to help people get up to speed on Strategy and aim to waste the less time and resources possible and design good and actionable Engineering Strategies.
Context: In which context the Engineering Strategy was designed.
High-stake business problem/challenge: These are the main high-stake challenges we need to overcome from the business point of view. The Engineering Strategy needs to serve our business goals instead of only the engineering goals.
Collaborative understanding: Involving the team members in collecting the correct information and situational awareness of where we are and our current risks and challenges.
Direction: Leadership can provide the proper focused Direction to overcome high-stake challenges.
KPIs: Able to measure the strategy progress. Important to notice that we need to measure progress instead of reaching the moment where “we finished the strategy.”
Coherent Actions: Along with the team, collaborate to create Coherent Actions that can make the Direction a reality. The Coherent Actions need to be led and executed by the team members instead of only leadership/management positions.
Timeline: When the Coherent Actions are started, this helps to have a timeline visualization of the progress.
The team is the primary vehicle to drive Engineering Strategy instead of only management positions.
Leadership to understand the team's needs, the business's needs, and the stakeholders’ needs to come up with the right Direction.
