- Delegating effectively
- Using feedback and goal-setting
- Developing influence
- Handling one-on-one meetings

- Deciding what work to do-and what not to do
- …and more.
Full of tips and practical advice on the most important aspects of management, this is one of those books that can make a lasting and immediate impact on your career.
"Rothman and Derby bring a clarity and honesty to the craft of software-development management that I haven’t felt since first reading Demarco and Lister’s classic, Peopleware. Their story-based teaching style is engaging, and the tips contained provide a valuable reference for those who find themselves in the world of management."
