Campfire 1 Managing Programmerssession

Managing Software Development in the Remote Age

Managing programmers has always been hard!  But guess what, it is now even harder trying to manage a team that is mostly or totally remote.  

About This Session

Managing programmers has always been hard!  But guess what, it is now even harder trying to manage a team that is mostly or totally remote.  And this isn’t just for companies that have been hiring remote and offshore developers for years and gained competitive advantage by 24x7 development and/or lower development costs.  Now literally all companies and managers must deal with this issue, without any of the benefits that might have made it worthwhile. 

Many of the “tried and true” management techniques (e.g., management by wandering around) are now totally useless.  Additionally, the lack of personal contact diminishes the effectiveness of those tools you will continue to use. 

Software Development Managers must adapt to this new reality and learn new tools and techniques that are effective when managing remotely. 

What should you stop trying to do with your remote team?  What should you be doing now to effectively manage remotely?  What tools and techniques can you adapt or embrace to make you a more effective manager?
