Having started in a mid-level CoS role back in 2014, I have fumbled my way through what a CoS's value proposition is for an organization and understood the importance of aligning with each Principal's vision for the organization. Acknowledging that these roles can be ambiguous and a "catch all" for ad-hoc programs, I look forward to understand how other companies construct these roles and the desired competencies. My past years have all been within the tech industry for enterprise (10k+ workers) companies, so I'd love to learn more about these roles at smaller companies. I am happy to share my learnings (& failures!) as I've pieced together how to bring focus to this role I've come to love and built my career around. I refer to my family as the "zoo" since it's a continuous state of organized chaos with 2 dads, 2 kids, 2 dogs & 2 cats!
