Technical Management

Poor managers create the illusion of productivity through busy-ness.
Average managers finish work (but not always the right work)
Great managers accomplish goals and develop people
You can’t spend too much time with people
Don’t offer help if you can’t deliver
Skills are only one part of success
See the work with big visible charts
A group differs from a team
Failure to give feedback costs more than money

Rule of three

  • one alternative is a trap
  • two alternatives is a dilemma
  • three alternatives provide a real choice

be a human pressure valve, learn to delegate things
