Project Management for the Technical Professionalby Michael Singer Dobson
Are you an "accidental manager"? Dobson's new book is the resource for technical professionals who suddenly discover that the skills that have made them successful aren't necessarily relevant in their new role as project manager. Dobson covers management strategies for all technical professionals by combining solid information and extensive documentation with humor and perspective. He takes a "ground-up" approach to effective management, assuming that the reader has no previous exposure or academic background, but is suddenly responsible for getting the job done! And this book works both ways. Not only does Project Management for the Technical Professional show how a technical professional can be a good manager, but it also demonstrates how a manager can oversee that"odd" breed we call "technical professionals." It's a guide to the emotional challenge of management, a glossary to key terms and concepts, and a handbook for dealing with "Generation X" professionals and ageism-all in one book.
