Transition into management is one of the most challenging steps an IT professional will take. The skills that got them here are not necessarily the skills that will continue to propel their career; acknowledging this is necessary but also daunting!
Fortunately, The Art of IT Management will help them prepare for the wide-ranging situations they’ll inevitably face, and give them the know-how to show people the way and become a successful leader of change.
The book takes a realistic look at the IT workplace, illustrating that management is all about people over process and procedure; it’s an art rather than a science and your approach has to be geared to the individual and the task in hand.
Dr Robina Chatham draws on her personal experiences – rising through the ranks from first-time manager to European CIO of a merchant bank – to offer practical advice, tools, hints and tips from the real world of IT.
All the stories are true, the advice tried and tested. From fundamental leadership skills to things that may keep you awake at night, this book is an essential resource for new and experienced managers alike.Buy from Amazon | £24.99 - Paperback
