Engineering Management for the Rest of Us” is an excellent primer for engineers looking to transition into management roles. So many challenges and learnings that helped me grow a tonne in that seemingly short period of time. I always wondered why regular leaders treat so hard their people, forgetting about human values and just asking for output and results without knowing context of every team member. I read it slowly but with great attention, took lots of notes and pondered over it, went back and forth, reread specific sections when they were particularly relevant to me. This includes clearly articulating project goals, giving precise instructions, providing constructive feedback, and maintaining an open line of communication with team members.

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. However, even seasoned managers could benefit from Drasner’s insights, particularly those struggling to navigate the day-to-day challenges of managing a technical team.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

Drasner advises that managers should have strategies in place to resolve conflicts effectively, while maintaining a positive and respectful team environment. Where the book could be better is in the presentation of diverse management styles and the examination of their effectiveness in varying organizational cultures. Engineering for the Management for the Rest of Us is a book that will gear you up for a journey into engineering management (or honestly kind of management, frankly) by highlighting a lot of common technical aspects of the career.I especially felt the chapter on how to run productive meetings and how to help others perform at their best will help me in my everyday work. The book has been edited and compiled as a cohesive whole, and includes a few chapters not publicly available.

Though the book is meant to address people in management, individual contributors are welcome to read the book as well- perhaps you need to manage up and need some tools to help guide the conversation, perhaps you just want a peek at other concerns within the business- everyone is invited to the conversation. This involves setting priorities, delegating tasks appropriately, and ensuring that projects stay on track. I later had the best manager I ever had and that was life changing for me, I started looking at this person as my friend, imagine the level of trust. It can be very tough for those of us who didn't go into Engineering with the distinct concept that we would become managers, but still want to do our best to support our teams.Join us at the next edition of Bookmarked where Suzan Bond will be joined by Sarah Drasner, who has 10+ years of experience in engineering management at all levels, from Lead to VP, to discuss her newest book ‘Engineering Management for the Rest of Us’. Throughout the pages, the author references numerous insightful articles and recommends several valuable books, including "Culture Map", "Drive", "Accelerate", and "The Happiness Advantage". If you're really new to a software engineering Team Lead or Engineering Manager role and don't have access to training, mentorship, or a supportive direct lead, this can be worth reading and building a further reading list out of.
