How to Manage Geeks

Interesting article on management of Geeks.. I’m sure most people have had to deal with more technically inclined people at one time or another. I can identify and agree to most points made in the interview.

If you don’t want to lose your geeks, you have to find a way to give them promotions without turning them into managers. Most of them are not going to make very good executives — and, in fact, most of them would probably turn out to be terrible managers. But you need to give them a forward career path, you need to give them recognition, and you need to give them more money.
