Things managers should do.

  1. :handshake: trust engineers
    • don’t question every implementation detail
    • allow engineers to drive some requirements/scope (assuming this leads to promotion)
  2. :zap: avoid heavyweight (non-agile) processes
    • process which work for BigTech will fail at SMEs small & medium-sized enterprises
  3. :shipit: ship fast & often
    • good: imperfect releases with feedback loops
    • bad: never-ending delays
    • perfectionism is often an excuse for procrastination
  4. :rocket: under-promise & over-deliver
    • provide clear vision (product’s problem-and-solution)
