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

WOW - this issue is a long one, as there's just been so much great content over the last week or so!

The CTO Craft Community continues to grow - we've had great AMAs in the last few weeks from the amazing Dan Hardiker (https://twitter.com/dhardiker) of Adaptavist and Paul Butcher (https://twitter.com/paulrabutcher) of Swiftkey, who each gave us their thoughts on teams, scaling, diversity, events and self-management. This week we'll be kicking off our first CTO book club - the team are voting on the first book as we speak.

If you would like to know more about joining the Community or attending one of our regular Mentoring Circles, fill in your details here, and we'll be in touch!

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

Retrospective Activities

Company Map (#68)

Draw a map of the company as if it was a country

Hand out pens and paper. Pose the question 'What if the company / department / team was territory? What would a map for it look like? What hints would you add for save travelling?' Let participants draw for 5-10 minutes. Hang up the drawings. Walk through each one to clarify and discuss interesting metaphors.

That's it!

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

Have an amazing week!
