Congressive Management Techniques: Gardening Your Team

Agile and Scrum were supposed to free us from management: self-organized, cross-functional teams who get stuff done without that old-guard hierarchy. In this fauxtopia, some software developers were more equal than others. Can we get the healthy parts back without the Lumberghs? To bring back healthy engineering management, we must first de-mystify and de-stigmatize the concept of management.

In this talk we will:
* Explore the context of management
* Learn the responsibilities of management
* Discuss the techniques of management

As an software developer, you will be equipped to understand, empathize with, and influence your boss. As a software development or project manager, you will build a foundation to help you better serve your team.
