On Being a Software Development Manager - Part 2

1,089 views

Published on

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

This particular presentation focuses on how to hold good meetings and some tips for great retrospectives.

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