Morning all! Welcome to the week - here's your regular shot of reading material; remember to pass it on to anyone you think might enjoy the read!

You should have received an invitation to join the free launch of our CTO Craft Community, where you can meet with experienced CTOs, get mentoring, read exclusive content and watch videos, and join monthly forums in Slack or in your city. We'd love to have you involved, as well as anyone else you think would benefit, so please do pass this link around!

We have 140 confirmed members for the trial and rising, and it'll be completely free until the end of 2017. The community will also allow you to mingle with experienced CTOs from startups like Made.com, Photobox, AdBrain, Fanduel, Betfair, Secret Sales and many more. Look forward to seeing you there!

Check out the TMW Archive. There's some real treasure in there.

The Worst We Could Do (#69)

Explore how to ruin the next iteration for sure

Hand out pens and sticky notes. Ask everyone for ideas on how to turn the next iteration / release into a certain desaster - one idea per note. When everyone's finished writing, hang up all stickies and walk through them. Identify and discuss themes. 
In the next phase turn these negative actions into their opposite.

That's it!

If you know someone who'd benefit from receiving TMW, send them here: Tech Manager Weekly.

Have an amazing week, and see you next Monday!
