“Mantle and Lichty 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 great blueprints 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 here 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 All too often, software development is deemed unmanageable. The news is filled with stories of projects that have run catastrophically over schedule and budget. Although adding some formal discipline to the development process has improved the situation, it has by no means solved the problem. How can it be, with so much time and money spent to get software development under control, that it remains so unmanageable? In Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams , Mickey W. Mantle and Ron Lichty answer that persistent question with a simple observation: You first must make programmers and software teams manageable. That is, you need to begin by understanding your people—how to hire them, motivate them, and lead them to develop and deliver great products. Drawing on their combined seventy years of software development and management experience, and highlighting the insights and wisdom of other successful managers, Mantle and Lichty provide the guidance you need to manage people and teams in order to deliver software successfully. Whether you are new to software management, or have already been working in that role, you will appreciate the real-world knowledge and practical tools packed into this guide.

Before I get into the purpose of this book, I think that it would be good to discuss what this book is not. If you are looking for a book on being a good leader, this probably is not the book for you, as there are plenty of others that provide more in-depth learning. This book is also not intended to help you to manipulate your boss to allow you to do what you want. If you aren't interested in developing a deeper working relationship with your boss and the hard work that accompanies that task, then this book is not for you. There are no quick fixes here. Some of the methods that I have laid out have taken months to complete, certainly not days. This book focuses on creating a win-win symbiotic relationship with your boss for the betterment of you, your boss, and your organization.The purpose of this book is two-fold. First, to help you to diagnose your boss to determine his strengths and weakness so that you can adequately develop an excellent working relationship. If he is capable of being someone that you can work with, we'll examine how to build that working relationship. Secondly, there are some bosses that you can't work with, no matter how hard you try. It's best to cut your losses and get out.Therefore, we'll examine how to identify which "bucket" he falls in. Hopefully, you can avoid the needless wasted time and effort of working with a boss that is not interested in you rather than meeting his own self-serving goals and using you as a pawn in a chess game. To accomplish the above purposes, I've divided this book into four parts. In part one, I will discuss what a good boss is and the importance of taking charge of your career and looking for an opportunity to work for this person. In part two, I will discuss those bosses that you should consider avoiding. If you work for one of them, you should strongly consider getting out as soon as you can. In part three, I will discuss how to work with those bosses who are neither good nor bad. They are human beings who, like all of us, are flawed. We'll discuss how to identify these flaws and how to work with them to develop a collaborative working relationship. I've labeled parts one through three: the good, the bad, and the ugly. In part four, we'll change gears and discuss how to create more good bosses and less bad ones. We'll do this by looking at what organizations can do as well as what you individually can do.This book is ideally suited for the recent graduate, who has had little experience in the world of work and may not be too sure what he wants to do in his life. I wish that I had this book when I started my career, I may have made some different choices about the bosses that employed me. It is also an excellent resource book when you are working with a new boss, and you can turn to the appropriate chapter to help you to form a good working relationship with him.After reading this book, it's my fervent hope that you will be proactive in finding the good bosses to work for, learn to work with the bosses who aren't so good, and quickly leave the bad bosses that will impede your career success. You shouldn't meekly accept the fact that your boss is creating a miserable work-life for you. Instead, you now have informed choices and options to do something about it.

Fully revised and expanded for the first time in a decade, this is Guy Kawasaki's classic, bestselling guide to launching and making your new product, service, or idea a success. Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur, small-business owner, intrapreneur, or not-for-profit leader, there's no shortage of advice on topics such as innovating, recruiting, fund raising, and branding. In fact, there are so many books, articles, websites, blogs, webinars, and conferences that many startups get paralyzed, or they focus on the wrong priorities and go broke before they succeed. The Art of the Start 2.0 solves that problem by distilling Guy Kawasaki's decades of experience as one of the most hardworking and irreverent strategists in the business world. Guy has totally overhauled this iconic, essential guide for anyone starting anything. It’s 64 percent longer than version 1.0 and features his latest insights and practical advice about social media, crowdfunding, cloud computing, and many other topics. Guy understands the seismic changes in business over the last decade: Once-invulnerable market leaders are struggling. Many of the basics of getting established have become easier, cheaper, and more democratic. Business plans are no longer necessary. Social media has replaced PR and advertising as the key method of promotion. Crowdfunding is now a viable alternative to investors. The cloud makes basic infrastructure affordable for almost any new venture. The Art of the Start 2.0 will show you how to effectively deploy all these new tools. And it will help you master the fundamental challenges that have not changed: building a strong team, creating an awesome product or service, and facing down your competition. As Guy likes to say, “Entrepreneur is a state of mind, not a job title.” His book will help you make your crazy ideas stick, through an adventure that's more art than science – the art of the start.
