Is it time to get rid of all the managers?

A presentation at the Øredev developer conference in Malmö
When I was a manager, I wanted to make a difference. A positive one. As a consultant, I work with managers who have the same goals. I’ve not yet come across anyone who wants to ruin everything (fortunately). When I started hearing the rhetoric about getting rid of the managers years ago, I was startled. Was I part of a huge problem that I didn’t even know existed?
This question led me on a journey that had me studying the history of management and what people really thought of my past performance. I shared part of that learning in a talk at Øredev in Malmö, Sweden a couple of weeks ago.
There is so much more to talk about on this subject that couldn’t fit in the talk. Please watch and let’s chat about your thoughts and experiences!
