I'm a technical director and individual contributor who focuses on issues such as:
- Corporate technical strategy (e.g. what technologies should we be investing in and when?),
- Cross company technical coordination (building consensus on the direction for our technical architecture and then herding the cats to make it happen),
- Standards strategy (which standards do we create/adopt/oppose and when?) and
- OSS strategy (how to best contribute to and take advantage of the resources on offer).
