Description

Sarah has done a good job of expanding the narratives by providing relevant references to other books and authors in between topics and chapters. I confess that some advices in part 3 (the one more into "engineering") sound horrible to me, quite misaligned with the way I understand product development based on software. Drasner suggests that engineering managers should not only accept change but also strive to be change catalysts, leading their teams through transformations effectively. My last book of the year was recommended by my managers manager when I asked for a book recommendation on the Engineering Management topic. As for key points and advice, I gained: align personal values, embrace curiosity, and strive to create clarity.

She also takes care to include practical strategies for navigating these challenges, making the book a potential treasure trove for new and experienced managers alike. This is not only an engineering book, trust, people caring and guiding is an human thing, if your are not a tech person and want to read it you may get confused in the code review chapter but totally worth it.

Engineering Management for the Rest of Us” is an excellent primer for engineers looking to transition into management roles. The book is too basic and lacks depth in technical topics that would be useful for those with a background in engineering.

Part of the job I learned from my peers, part of it from books I read over the years, but most of the time I improvised as I went, inspired by former managers I admire the most and guided by my very own idea of what good management looks like. Even though the author makes some assumptions about the reader — they work in tech, are engineering managers, and look forward to making themselves better — it never underestimates or overestimates the reader.I had already read (and I reread on a yearly basis) How to Win Friends and Influence People, so most of the ideas shared in the book are things I already practise.
