RE: Software Metrics Don’t Kill Projects, Moronic Managers Kill Projects

Great article Software Metrics Don’t Kill Projects, Moronic Managers Kill Projects, couldn’t agree less. I had written about working for good managers a while ago, thinking back about it and in general about the rate of successful Software projects I can’t help but think, Does the software industry in general have a high rate of Moronic Managers ? how come the software industry has so many failed projects ?

I think part of the problem lies in the fact that most managers have a technical background, they are great programmers and their success was rewarded with a promotion. Wish there were some online program or cash course that these new budding managers could take. I know there are a lot of books that can help too. I think it should become mandatory that one has to either read or get certified before he becomes a manager.

We have a saying in India, ‘For an intelligent person, you just need to show him the direction”, he will do the rest, I think programmers in general are very intelligent they just need the right direction šŸ™‚
