★★★☆☆ Resilient Management by Lara Hogan
Oct 30, 2021
I liked the fact that the book is short, goes straight to the point, contains mostly
practical advices and methods to manage an engineering team (the target audience in my
opinion is line managers). Similarly to “The Manager’s Path” by Camille Fournier, you
can keep this book on your desk and use it whenever you need it, like a manual. Read book notes.
★★★★☆ Turn the Ship Around! by L. David Marquet
Aug 17, 2021
I was skeptical at first because leadership and management style in the military are not really
my cup of tea, but this is different: the author seems to have the same feelings, except he was
a submarine commander in the US Navy. Read book notes.
★★★★☆ Peopleware by T. De Marco and T. Lister (3rd ed.)
Dec 1, 2019
I believe this is the mother of all the management books I’ve read so far: I can trace
back most of the concepts that nowadays are common in engineering management to a
paragraph, or a simple quote from this book. Read book notes.
★★★★☆ Team Geek by Brian W. Fitzpatrick, Ben Collins-Sussman
Jul 11, 2013
The authors keep saying a sort of mantra during the book: HRT, an acronym that stands
for Humility, Respect and Trust. Apply this mantra and you will soon become an excellent
team player, whatever your job is. Read book notes.
