Presentation I gave to the Vancouver Island Software Development Managers' Rountable in April of 2010. This is part one of two.

In these slides I present some suggestions on how to be a better Software Development Manager. Many of the topics were excerpted from my blog at www.leadingsoftware.ca.

Make sure you view the slide notes or this won't be very useful.
