From the Back Cover:

Master the skills needed for successfully managing technical personnel

Independent-minded professionals such as scientists, programmers, and engineers are the driving forces behind today's technical industry. Accustomed to working alone, these self-reliant individuals present unique management challenges for leaders supervising their efforts.

Written by authors drawing on many years of management experience in technical field, A Guide to Success for Technical Managers provides technical managers and supervisors with the leadership and management tools necessary for making informed decisions in supervisory situations. It includes self-awareness exercises, templates, and checklists to help accelerate job skills. Some of this book's highlights include:

  • Ways to deal with the transition to supervising others in research and development

  • Tips for improving listening skills, communicating better, and motivating employees

  • Examination of the pitfalls and obstacles faced in managing technical personnel

  • A selection of real-life examples, along with suggestions on how to solve them

  • Examples of real-world outcomes based on decisions made by actual technical managers

  • A 365-day leadership journal with daily tips to increase leadership effectiveness

By modifying conventional management techniques to fit the specific needs of technical managers and supervisors, A Guide to Success for Technical Managers offers a fresh perspective on fostering employee development in an industry where non-conventional strategies are most often the best practice.
