Agile software project management

The software development process has been undergoing a revolution in recent years. Thanks to the work of Kent Beck, Mike Cohn and others, the new buzz-word is "Agile".

In essence, being 'agile' addresses all of the issues you raise in these two episodes. It brings managers (of a sort) down to a level where they are interacting much more with their team, they are focussing on delivery of working software as the primary measure of progress, and on collaboration as the best way to do it. It works!
