Agile was supposed to free us from management, right? Self-organized, cross-functional Scrum teams who get stuff done without that old-guard hierarchy. In this fauxtopia, some software developers were more equal than others. Can we get the healthy parts back without the Lumberghs?
To bring back healthy software engineering management we first must de-mystify and de-stigmatize the concept of management. This talk will:
* Explore the context of management
* Learn the responsibilities of management
* Discuss the techniques of management
As an Agile software developer, you will learn how to understand, empathize with, and influence your boss. As a manager, you will build a foundation to help you better serve your Scrum team.
