Management Short thoughts

Engineering Management is like Debugging

Engineering management is a lot like debugging and bug-fixing at times.

Sometimes you don’t know much about a failure except that it happened. Sometimes the solution is clear but risky in some way, and sometimes you just know what needs to be done and wonder why you didn’t do it earlier.

More often than not, there’s a problem coming up that you didn’t expect and don’t fully understand. As with code, those bugs are hard to figure out, but when you do, it’s extremely rewarding.
