Technology Today…

The power in your hands

Secrets & Pitfalls of Tech Management

This week on Technology Today, we talk about managing technology projects and the technical teams that complete them. We’ll ask if managing technology teams really is different from managing teams in more traditional businesses? Is the “quirky” workplaces at Microsoft and Google really a part of their success or just something that’s tolerated because those firms are successful?

We’ll ask discuss whether social media, and constant connectivity has inspired new tools for managing people and projects? Join us on Thursday at 4pm EST on the VoiceAmerica Business channel (business.voiceamerica.com).

Author John Levy will join us in our discussion. His 30 years of experience in the computer and software industry serves as the perfect backdrop to our discussion. His new book, “Get Out of the Way”, offers strategies for empowering, encouraging, and directing a top-notch development team. John has held engineering management positions with Quantum, Apple Computer, Tandem Computers, and Digital Equipment. He earned a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University and holds engineering degrees from Cornell and Caltech.

We’ll take your calls live on-air 866-472-5790. Reach us on Twitter at /techtodayradio, or by e-mail at agupta@technologytodayradio.com. You can also reach the show by Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/agupta20854 or on our fan page at Technology Today.
