A business classic
27 October 2016
Probably the best book on management I've ever read. Even better than "Slack". While it's written mainly in the context of managing software development teams, the principles - which often run quite contrary to common practice - apply just as well to managing any knowledge based workers, and even production lines. Despite being written decades ago, again the key principles still apply just as much today as they ever did - many of them probably even more so.
Even if you're not and never plan to be a manager it's still worth a read because it's so well written.
Probably my favourite non-fiction book and recommended to pretty much anyone with even the slightest interest in management, or looking for help in successfully and constructively criticising yours.
