Management of Programmers
Programmers are a special breed of workers
The Organisational culture needs to embrace flexibility and the concept of virtual teams. Rather than trying to micro-manage these teams, the manager must use tools to track progress
The world of software development has evolved to the point where projects comprise of virtual teams who reside across the world. This gives rise to the use of skillsets that may be limited in a country,ability to do 24 hours development (Coder’s checks in his code and a coder in a different time zone can pick up this code and continue coding) or the reduction in cost of the resource.
