How does a technical leader get more revenue-savvy?

Top Answer : This is one of my top challenges, gaining more knowledge to have more revenue and business savvy than where I am right now.  This situation happens a lot, where my CEO says, hey Roberto, I require this.  And then, I present some projects to him.  But then he tells me that I am way too ahead.  That I’m two years away from what we need right now.  I am challenged to match my company’s business needs right now, and deliver technologies that will work today, that customers are ready to acquire today, not in the future.

1 - You have to understand that the only way for a company to survive is having revenue. 2 - Understand the industry/business you're in, read a lot about it, talk to experts in the industry, your peers, your team. 3 - always work hand-by-hand with revenue departments (commercial, marketing, business development). 4 - don't be afraid to speak out your mind.
