Management Is Art I
Some nice viewpoints from an experienced manager/IT worker: Stevey's Blog Rants: (Not) Managing Software Developers
I still have a lot more experience to gain; I know my firmly held beliefs will change. That being said, I still think that some formality, some measurement is very valuable. I think it's because I am frustrated by not knowing where I stand right now: What is expected of me? Am I meeting up? That's why I'm so big on one-on-ones. You can give and get that kind of valuable feedback, even if there isn't a formal plan with concrete metrics.
