Smart Engineers and Dumb Managers

Smart Engineers and Dumb Managers“Why the hell do I need a manager? I can do my job. I do not need to be managed. Let me know what the heck I need to do, and I can get it done. I am tired of taking bullshit from a manager who has no idea how I get things done. And why do I need to hear from a person who failed to innovate as an engineer and jumped to a business school to get an MBA?” I hear this all the time. This is a real and strong sentiment from many of the people I work with. I am amazed by the number of people who share their frustration with me. I do listen to them with an immense interest and I am humbled that people working for me consider me as one of them.
