About Ron Lichty
Ron Lichty has been transforming chaos to clarity and making software development “hum” for most of his 20 years managing software development and product organizations.
He has repeatedly been brought in as a “VPE of Fix-It” to solve problems like painfully slow product development, past-due estimates with no delivery in sight, challenges arising from geographically dispersed teams, scalability stymied by sluggish data integration, productivity bridled by uncertainty, an "order-taking mentality" from teams that should be eagerly proactive, and teams unable to break out of research and move on to development and delivery.
Having managed a product marketing group at Apple Computer early in his career, Ron is especially attuned to the challenges product managers face. As an engineering VP since then, he highly values the partnerships he has formed with product managers.
About The Book:
Managing the Unmanageable:
Mickey Mantle and Ron Lichty, two software industry veterans with over 70 years of combined experience, have crafted a book that will help any software manager be more successful. Having spent their careers developing software, leading software development projects, and managing programmers and teams, they have now distilled their experience into a book that every beginning programming manager should read and have on their bookshelves for reference.
It’s a book that will also help executives who struggle sponsoring projects dependent upon software success – CEOs, COOs, CTOs, and others – understand the craft of software development and the intricacies of how to manage software people and teams to deliver software projects successfully.
This book will help any software manager get a handle on their own unmanageable challenges. Highly recommended for anyone who works or lives with software developers!
