Registered: 2008-08-26 Austin, Tx
I never meant to get into mid-level stuff. I just wanted to jump straight into my own company or consulting after being a team-lead for 10 years or so.|
Anyway, I am now getting asked to train whole swaths of my company (engineers, workers, managers, accounting/finance people) on things which are more policy related. I program systems, I don't set policy which dictates how business rules are programmed in the system. I can tell you how the system works due to the coding, I can't tell you why we set the business rules that way.
This sounds ****ty, but I'm not ****ing around, evidently I'm one of the most capable people so they think I know how they should do their job, when I really just code the system and they should know how to do their jobs and tell me how to code it.
If they want me to assume that role of being their manager, I can do that no problem. But I'm a scientist and programmer. Do you guys know a couple of good management books so I can learn the process for telling these people how to do their job? It sounds insane but if they want me to be their manager too, I'll do it.
Edit: I don't need to know how to do their job inherently. I need to know the method managers use for discovering that and then making them effective at their jobs.
