Providing clear, expert guidance to help engineers make a smooth transition to the management team, this a newly revised and updated edition of an Artech House bestseller belongs on every engineer’s reference shelf. The author’s 30-plus year perspective indicates that, while most engineers will spend the majority of their careers as managers, most are dissatisfied with the transition.

The greatly expanded Second Edition adds critical new discussions on the development of healthy teams, meeting management, delegating, decision making, and personal branding. New managers are taught to internalize the attitudes and master the associated skills to excel in, and be satisfied with the transition to management. The book explains how to communicate more effectively and improve relationships with colleagues. Professionals learn how to use their newly acquired skills to solve immediate problems. Moreover, they are shown how to apply six fundamental principles to their on-going work with engineering teams and management.

You know that great improvement initiatives abound. What you maynot know is how to implement them effectively; get fast, dramaticimprovement; and sustain those results for the long term. It's acommon problem. But take heart: The next wave of performanceexcellence is here—the seamless integration of today'sleading improvement methods. This integration, described thoroughlyin this book, builds upon the strengths and addresses theshortcomings of each discipline. For example: While Six Sigma provides a disciplined, quantitativeapproach, many efforts fail because they don't address the peopleside of performance improvement and change management. Plus, SixSigma efforts are expensive and take too long to produceresults. Lean Manufacturing techniques can provide quick results,but they lack quantitative tools to reduce variation, and, as aresult, are incapable of addressing numerous high-dollarimprovement opportunities. Though High-Performance Organizations (HPO) createconditions for great motivation, improve intra-organizationalinteractions, and lower employee turnover, many HPO interventionsfail to produce solid business results because members lack adisciplined approach and the tools for improvement.

Managers want great teams, but most build them around decades-old ideas and practices made popular by companies that have lost their edge. Extreme Teams looks at the new generation of teams driving growth in today’s most innovative firms. They do this by doing things differently: hiring the right person instead of the best person; focusing on one priority while leaving room to explore new ideas; creating an environment where people are comfortable dealing with the uncomfortable; and maximizing profit by not making profit what matters most. The book takes you inside top companies and examines the teamwork experiments powering their results, including how: Pixar’s teams use constant feedback and debate to transform initially flawed films into billion-dollar hits A culture of radical “freedom and responsibility” helps Netflix execute on the next big thing Whole Food’s super-autonomous teams embrace hard metrics and friendly competition to drive performance Zappos fuels the weirdness and fun that sustains its success Times change, and so must teams. Designing and managing high-performance teams requires upgrading outdated beliefs and behaviors, and spurring a level of intensity and collaboration that lets them face down any challenge.
