Chapter Lead, you say?

Well, it’s like managing a team, but not as you (might) know it. You focus on managing people rather than projects. You look after the personal and technical development of your team members. In other words, you help them become the best version of themselves. You coach, inspire, evaluate and reward them. In an agile environment, it’s called a Chapter Lead.

Agile, you say?

Look at Spotify. Change and innovation happens faster in an agile environment. BNP Paribas Fortis also chose the agile way of working. To scope, design, develop and market products faster. With multidisciplinary Squads and Tribes who carry end-to-end responsibility, set their own goals and decide how to achieve them. Where ideas are more important than hierarchy. And where Chapter Leads support the personal development of a specific group of IT experts. That’s you, by the way.

My role, you say?

You will be managing a group of people with a specific IT role. Think analysts, developers, testers or engineers. But there’s more. A Chapter Lead also strategically contributes to the success of Squads and Tribes. By being the linking pin between Tribe management and the Squad members. By selecting and onboarding new talents. By (re-)organising Squads and Chapters as needed. By interacting with other Chapter Leads in a Guild, where you share ideas and best practices.

Cool! Where do I start?
