33.1. The Basics

To be a successful technical manager, you need to understand how to work with both nontechnical managers and your technical staff. Your technical staff people will consider that the way you deal with them is of utmost importance. If you fail to make them feel appreciated or to help them when they need you, the group will fall apart. If you fail to work well with the nontechnical managers in the company, you will not be able to set realistic goals, deadlines, and budgets for your group, and you will not be able to project a good image of your group to the company. These problems also will adversely affect your group.

In this section, we look at how to work with both your technical staff and the nontechnical managers in the company. We look at some of your responsibilities as a technical manager and prepare you for some of the decisions you will have to make in that position.
