12 Take-Aways: Managing the Unmanageable

Workshops to be conducted by Ron Lichty and Mickey W. Mantle, authors of Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams (http://www.ManagingTheUnmanageable.net). Published by Addison Wesley, the book has been compared by many readers to programming classics The Mythical Man-Month and Peopleware. A video training course, Live Lessons: Managing Software People and Teams, based on the recently published 2nd edition of their book, is available via O’Reilly’s Safari Bookshelf (http://www.ManagingTheUnmanageable.net/video.html).

The book and workshop are a resource for first time managers, as well as for seasoned managers – including those undergoing the sometimes uncomfortable transition to agile methodology. This is a rare chance to meet and hear both authors talk about the fundamental best practices of managing programmers.

The 90-minutes workshop will consist of:

  • Highlights from Managing the Unmanageable: the Book and the MasterClass Workshop
  • Top Takeaways to your most unmanageable challenges
  • Q&A: we’ll answer your questions

From Command-and-Control to Agility at Scale

In the complex field of software development, teams are increasingly dependent on one another to achieve their objectives. For leaders, success requires leading through influence rather than authority and successfully navigating dynamic webs of dependencies across teams and projects. Leveraging case studies from technology companies as well as the U.S. Special Forces, this workshop will offer engineering leaders practical tools for working horizontally within their organizations to achieve a common purpose.
