Best and worst examples of management

    Hi,

    I've spent all of my post-uni career consulting and thus not, during that time, had a manager in the traditional sense. I did, however, spend some time on a kind of "work experience"-ish kinda placement where I did have one.

    The guy had got some experience building some databases using Microsoft Access and maybe had written some odd little bits of code. Hardly the same as architecting and building something rather more complex, which is what I was doing there. Unfortunately, he didn't really understand the boundaries of his own knowledge, and often interfered, often providing a variety of fairly vague and, to the project, useless comments that only wasted my time. I just sat there, was polite and listened - I think he was genuinely well meaning - but to me it was pretty much dead time I coulda been doing useful stuff. It was an annoyance more than anything, and not a disaster for the project, but then I was only there for a couple of months working on that. A couple of years, on the other hand, might have brought the annoyance to a level where it made me just want to quit, so the "interfering manager who thinks they know more than they do" scenario could easily actually harm a project, I think.

    I'm actually responsible now for managing someone on behalf of one of my clients. I'm a good programmer, but managing is a different skill to hacking and a year in all I know is that I've got a lot to learn about that art...

    I don't have any stories of epic fail for stuff I've been directly involved in. But give it a few years...

    Jonathan

    Assuming you're out of college by now and you have a good grasp with your business, you might consider some form of training session for your supervisors and/or employees. You could go a number of routes, whether it's standard training manuals or more advanced (and digestable) methods in the vein of elearning. There are [link=http://www.ej4.com/]many elearning companies[/link] out there, and some can adapt certain training for management. [link=http://www.ej4.com/content/management-training]Management elearning[/link] tutorials can help change sour management experiences for the better.
