Coaching & Strategic Advisory Services.
Benefit from independent, honest, and confidential expert support as you need it.
You may be thinking about launching a new Developer Relations Program, have just started in a Developer Relations Leadership role, or are looking to re-boot an existing Developer Relations Program to drive better performance.
How do you Build a High Performance Developer Program?
As your developer program grows, you will have increased authority, credibility, and impact, along with increased budgets and complexities. Appreciating these influences and understanding the stage of your program can help you move your program towards maturity and overall increased impact on your organization.
As you build your confidence and your team, we can help through:
If you could benefit from a check-in with an expert for an honest, independent, and confidential perspective on the challenges you face with your Developer Relations program, our coaching program could be for you. For each one-hour session, we deep dive into a particular Developer Relations topic of your choice or bring a problem you want to work through. These coaching sessions are super flexible, starting with single sessions or a regular recurring spot.
You can start with coaching and then decide you want a deeper engagement to support you and your team. It’s always better when you feel comfortable with the people providing support. At this point, we may collectively agree that you will benefit from one of our Developer Relations Workshops, a Developer Experience Audit, a Developer Content Strategy, or something bespoke to your organization.
Our goal will be to provide you with the knowledge and tools to lead and grow your own high performance Developer Program, one which is structured, resourced, measured, focused, and aligned.
