Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

The Methods & Tools newsletter has just released in its html archive section the article "Fear of Intervention - How Subordinates Grow to be Entrepreneurs". Increasing the effectiveness of workers in a software development organization can often be done by introducing some surprisingly simple practices. However, manager-subordinate relations and a history of less than pleasant management interventions can make workers to afraid of interventions to improve their effectiveness. Using an allegorical story based on various experiences and Diagrams of Effects, this article investigates actions that can be undertaken to empower someone in a subordinate position to improve his or her effectiveness.
