Silicon Valley Forum CEO Chris Gill hosts Ron Lichty and Mickey Mantle, co-authors of the fantastic new book 'Managing the Unmanageable'
What early readers are saying about Managing the Unmanageable:
"Lichty and Mantle 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 a great blueprint 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 there 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
"Managing the Unmanageable is a well-written, must-have reference book for anyone serious about building sustainable software teams that consistently deliver high quality solutions that meet expectations. It is loaded with incredibly useful and practical tips and tricks to deal with real-life situations commonly encountered by software managers anywhere in the world. It tearlessly peels back the onion layers of the process of managing software developers - whether a handful of co-located programmers or thousands dispersed across the world - through a balance of battle-tested approaches and keen understanding of the various personalities and backgrounds of software team members. Finally, a book on software engineering that focuses on the manager's dilemma of making a team of programmers work efficiently together. Every single software manager should have it on their bookshelf." Phac Le Tuan, CTO, Reepeet, and CEO, PaceWorks
"Becoming a great engineering leader requires more than technical know how; Ron's and Mickey's book provides a practical cookbook for the important softer side of engineering leadership that can be applied to any software development organization." Paul Melmon, VP of Engineering, NICE Systems
"EXCELLENT. Well-structured, logical, filled with great personal color and many little gems. You guys have done a great job here. Terrific balance between theory and practice, rich with info." Joe Kleinschmidt, CTO & co-founder, Leverage Software
