“People don’t leave firms; they leave bosses, according to a proverb. Any organization needs management, although the discipline is frequently unstructured and self-taught. Finding effective answers to complicated management problems can be the difference between teams being happy or unhappy and, ultimately, between a company succeeding or failing.
An Elegant Puzzle by Will Larson focuses on the unique difficulties of engineering management, including team sizing, dealing with technical debt, and succession planning, and offers a way to effective solutions. Larson has created a comprehensive approach to engineering management for executives at all levels at businesses of all sizes by drawing on his experience at Digg, Uber, and Stripe. An Elegant Puzzle assists any leader in building more efficient and fulfilling organizations where engineers may thrive by balancing organized principles and human-centric thinking.”
