Managing a Technical Team: Lessons Learned

I got promoted to management a couple of years ago, and despite what I previously believed, there were no fluffy pillows and bottles of champagne awaiting me. My team liked me, but they didn’t exactly stoop and bow when I entered the room. I’ve spent the last year relearning everything I thought I knew about management, and what it means to be a manager of a technical team. This session is intended for new managers, especially if you’ve come from a database (or other technical) background.

Stuart Ainsworth (MA, MEd) is a part-time TeamMate for Linchpin People, focusing primarily on helping SQL People get things done. In his day job, he's an IT manager working in the realm of financial information security. Over the past 15 years, he's worked as a research analyst, a report writer, a DBA, a programmer, and a public speaking professor.
