CEO, Tech Start-up
Does the CEO Of A New Tech Start-up Need to Know the Coding?
This is a big question now a day when a number of Tech start-ups are popping up every day and young entrepreneurs ready to put their shoe in this booming sector. Few tech geeks blindly go for a big YES and others without a technical background, a plain NO.
Unfortunately the answer to this question is not as logical as coding, and falls somewhere in between a big YES and plain NO. A CEO ‘The God Father’ of a company is bound to handle each and every affair related to his business weather its product development, product launch, marketing, after sales ,fund raising and a lot more. A single ace of all these fields is really hard to find and certainly can’t be imported from any other planet.
Considering a broader picture, all the organizations, start-ups, industry is basically a set of functions and each function is guided by a set of logic so a prime requisite for a CEO is “to be logical” not necessarily “technical”. He must be able to understand the logic behind coding if not the technology, because technology changes every day and it seems unjust to put all the focus on technical aspects neglecting other dimensions. The base of all coding is a flow chart which is simply an array of structured logic. Not only the technical team but all the teams and employees of a company search a leader in their CEO ,they want him compassionate, supportive, decisive, tough, a quick learner, thinker and super logical.
Go forward with a holistic approach, try to polish the leader within you, stand straight in storms because it’s the attitude which makes a CEO “The God Father”, all the technicalities are just a part of his big aura.
Let a CEO become God Father
