Summary
The people who research, develop, design, build, test, install, and support technology are a critical factor in every organization's success. This book gives clear directions on how to effectively lead these brilliant yet notoriously resistant-to-being-managed knowledge workers. It not only provides proven management strategies but also background on why traditional approaches often don't work with geeks. It describes the beliefs and behavior of geeks, their group dynamics, and the unique nature of technical work
