In Season 2, Episode 1 of Lead Time Chats, Jean Hsu, VP of Engineering at Range, talks to Camille Fournier, Managing Director of Two Sigma and author of The Manager’s Path, about boring stuff — specifically building boring tech and making boring plans.

Camille and Jean discuss:

  • Limited innovation tokens and how to decide where to spend them (hint: it’s not on cool tech)!
  • What boring plans actually look like, especially when you do need to upgrade to more interesting tech so your team doesn’t fall behind.
  • Rolling out company-wide platform updates as rigorously as you would plan for an external launch
  • How to manage up and build credibility that you’re delivery value when undertaking long-running technical projects
