Through out my many years in the industry one of the biggest challenges was for engineers, scientist and anyone with a technical background to make the transition into management. Once they were promoted into a management role they found it hard to let go of the technical aspects and to delegate effectively.
Many of them were outstanding in their field of expertise. But felt very uncomfortable in their new roles. They all lacked the skill sets that are truly required to succeed in their new roles as a manager and leader.
In this book you will have a better understanding of what these issues were and what and how to better understand them.
A must read for anyone thinking about taking the next step into Management. Both in government and private industry.
