Job Overview
The Chapter Lead position is split into two distinct functions:
First, this position is a leadership role to guide IT Engineers (Developers) in developing solutions based on working with the Product organization (Product Owners and Business Analysts). A Chapter Lead forms the most important connection between the Product Organization and the Chapter Area Lead in making sure that the IT Engineers receive day-to day coaching and guidance.
The Chapter Lead will spend around 30% of the time directly coaching their reports. The Chapter Lead role has a high level of expertise in a specific technology, such as, Java, Data Analysis, Integration, Angular or Python. This is the area they will be coaching the most.
Second, the position will spend the other 70% of their day-to-day activities on non-managerial tasks like developing code, code reviews, or working on coordinating with the Architecture or Platform (Infrastructure) teams. They will be part of an agile Block that is dedicated to a business function.
Job Responsibilities
An essential part of the Chapter Lead role is helping to develop talent within your craft. As an expert and servant leader, you are able to coach and develop your chapter members to become better craftspeople, and to find their own rewarding career paths. Importantly, while you provide craft-specific support to your chapter members, you do not manage their day-to-day activities, this comes from the Product Owner of their block using the Agile process.
Three main types of responsibilities:

  • Define best practice way of working
  • Perform strategic workforce planning (for your chapter, together with the Chapter Area Lead)
  • Manage and grow people


In short a chapter lead is responsible for the "how" within the competence of the chapter in terms of way of working and people management. They are responsible for:

  • Being an active block member, bringing expertise into the block and working on day-to-day tasks from the block's backlog
  • Defining professional standards, work methodologies and (technical) standards within the chapter competency
  • Setting up interaction and knowledge sharing processes within the chapter
  • Act as a thought-leader within their area of expertise, guiding, motivating and inspiring chapter members.
  • Lead performance evaluation from their direct reports by coaching them both on soft- and hard skills.
