Leading Geeks Paul Glen How to Manage and Lead the People Who Deliver Technology

In today s business climate, technology drives productivity, and competitiveness and geeks drive technology. More than ever, geeks those people who research, develop, design, build, test, install, and support technology are a critical factor in every organization s success.
Leading Geeks challenges the conventional wisdom that leadership methods are universal and gives executives and managers the understanding they need to manage and lead the technologists on whom they have become so dependent.
This much needed book written in nontechnical language by Paul Glen, a highly acclaimed management consultant gives clear directions on how to effectively lead these brilliant yet notoriously resistant to being managed knowledge workers. Glen not only provides proven management strategies but also background on why traditional approaches often don t work with geeks.
Leading Geeks describes the beliefs and behavior of geeks, their group dynamics, and the unique nature of technical work. It also offers a unique twelve part model that explains how knowledge workers deliver value to an organization.
Leading Geeks clarifies the responsibilities and tasks of the geek leader and contrasts them to conventional approaches to leadership. Glen also shows you how to
Motivate geeks to be productive
Facilitate productivity within technical groups
Represent geeks to the world outside the lab and cubicle
Manage ambiguity to create an environment in which geeks and leaders thrive
Structure groups of geeks to support an organization
Leading Geeks gives managers the tools they need to transform the chaos of the creative workplace into a coherent and compelling place for geeks to work.
