1.  tech-related workplace counseling

Posted Dec 27, 2016 15:19

Hello all

I am an avid reader of the Ask a Manager blog (http://www.askamanager.org/) which deals with advice giving on workplace issues.

I was wondering if anyone knows of an equivalent advice blog or column that deals specifically with techie-related workplace concerns?

Something that delves into communication issues between tech staff and non-tech staff, for example. Or scoping tech projects properly and communicating the scope to non-tech decision-makers. "Managing up" for techie workers who have non-technical supervisors, etc.

Thanks for any leads!

Thanks for sharing the Ask a Manager blog! I'm digging into it now.

I don't have any recommendations for your question, unfortunately. I have been thinking that an operations-type group might be useful here. If there's enough interest we could start one: http://www.nten.org/community/online-groups/about/.

I look forward to seeing what others recommend.
