The Five W's of Engineering Leadership

In the last couple of months, I've had some interesting conversations with my employer about my career. Frankly, I'm not sure what I want to do next. One thing that has come out of these conversations is a simple abstraction I've used to think about different positions and what they do. I've based it on the Five W's.

There are plenty of corner cases but at least having some high level abstraction has given me some guidance.
