must protect the technology team from becoming a pure execution arm

I hate environments where the technology department is simply implementing what was envisioned by others. It might as well be an outsourced development team because it becomes independent of the decision making process. As Camille Fournier puts it in ‘On the role of CTO,’ “The CTO must protect the technology team from becoming a pure execution arm for ideas without tending to its own needs and its own ideas.”
