IT management

I think best IT managers absolutely need achieve and maintain certain level of IT excellence and relevance. Against what I was convinced most of the years of my professional career, I now found evidence to contradict my previous conviction of best IT managers not being technologists. I guess it takes more than just one glarring example for one to change their mind, a good book or really convincing story passed by a friend, but I cant imagine confident management of toddays complex, multi-purpose, distributed and interleaved technology by someone who don’t feel confident enough to constantly manage it all, measure, cut, redefine making all very subtle and sometimes brave decisions all the way long. Otherwise the whole team is constantly exposed to a risk of locking in a irrelevant set of processes created as a byproduct of overly risk averse culture leading themselves to a complete extinction.
