How to Lead IT Knowledge Workers
The Agile Zone is brought to you in partnership with JetBrains. Learn how Agile Boards in YouTrack are designed to help teams plan, visualize and manage their work in an efficient manner, with support for both Scrum and Kanban processes.
In my humble opinion, software developers are demanding this: Have less rules that are more suited to blue collar working environments.
I've written a free book to address the typical needs of IT knowledge workers by giving a unique leadership approach. This leadership approach has following important items:
1. Knowledge Work Fundamentals
2. Generation (boomers, X and Y) Study
3. Culture Analysis
4. Employee Card (goal settings, SWOT(Strength-Weakness-Opportunity-Threat), annual performance review, and peer survey)
5. Broadcasting Channel
6. Team Goals Setting
7. Reference Cards
8. Team Lead Evaluation
I wrote a booklet about my experiences and you can download it here .
