“Mantle and Lichty have assembled a guide that will help you hire, motivate, and mentor a software development team that functions at the highest level. Their rules of thumb and coaching advice are great blueprints for new and experienced software engineering managers alike.” —Tom Conrad, CTO, Pandora “I wish I’d had this material available years ago. I see lots and lots of ‘meat’ in here that I’ll use over and over again as I try to become a better manager. The writing style is right on, and I love the personal anecdotes.” —Steve Johnson, VP, Custom Solutions, DigitalFish All too often, software development is deemed unmanageable. The news is filled with stories of projects that have run catastrophically over schedule and budget. Although adding some formal discipline to the development process has improved the situation, it has by no means solved the problem. How can it be, with so much time and money spent to get software development under control, that it remains so unmanageable? In Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams , Mickey W. Mantle and Ron Lichty answer that persistent question with a simple observation: You first must make programmers and software teams manageable. That is, you need to begin by understanding your people—how to hire them, motivate them, and lead them to develop and deliver great products. Drawing on their combined seventy years of software development and management experience, and highlighting the insights and wisdom of other successful managers, Mantle and Lichty provide the guidance you need to manage people and teams in order to deliver software successfully. Whether you are new to software management, or have already been working in that role, you will appreciate the real-world knowledge and practical tools packed into this guide.

Learning and knowledge in business is undergoing a dramatic, and necessary, revolution. Business leaders are redefining the concept of leadership and reevaluating the basic premises of management in the knowledge–driven company. Knowledge management is a slippery concept. Knowledge is a set of related beliefs and experiences in the mind of an individual, not a physical asset like capital equipment. How can we manage that which resides with the minds of others, intangible and invisible? How can we manage the unmanageable? Rather than a “how-to” manual for mounting knowledge management initiatives, in this book Stowe Boyd examines the new realities for business: · The value of a business is no longer principally based on tangible assets, but on intangibles · Information technology is the prime mover of the new economy, and those who master IT increase their chances of success · Our ways of management a largely leftover from the industrial era of the immediate past, and are not naturally workable in the new business context In exploring the contradictions posed by the old and the new economic order, business leaders learn to balance the apparently opposing interests of delivering value to customer and encouraging the development and sharing of knowledge in the firm.
