What I found so far is: I hafta pull the boat by myself, why have manager if I hafta do by myself.

Seriously I am thinking to make my own business because no one will teach me I have to learn by myself.

  • Devs should be recognized as the professionals they are and thus not be micro-managed
  • Teams should organize themselves
  • Team members should choose their own mode of work
  • Management is there to provide a goal, not a vision (attempts to provide a vision from top down are usually doomed)
  • People can avoid wasting time in meetings and other needless administrivialities

I tend to prioritize teamwork and trust in others! It can be hard to have one without the other, but having a team that is also optimistic and believes in the product they are creating is super helpful in driving morale of the team!
