Invaluable advice for new (and existing) managers

I've been catching up on some blog reading and stumbled across this excellent post on what being a manager means, especially where technical project management is required. Tom explains that the posts have been linked to from a few project management blogs over in the US and also, is required reading for several tech firms in Silicon Valley and beyond. And I've had a read, and it really is required reading for any manager, especially someone who's new to the role. Maybe there's a book in there Tom?

And while we're talking about management, here are some top communication tips for IT managers. More sensible advice and straight-talking and not just for techie folk! I know plenty people who still mumble and don't open their mouths when they talk and it's so unnecessary!
