Those who think “People Management” and “Technology Management” as two separate streams in an organization, fails to realize that you can’t segregate them. If you are incompetent in technology, you can’t excuse by saying “I am good in people management”.
A pure people management is limited to the scope of work supervision. In an IT company what we require is “Technical Leadership”. The boldness of technical leadership is reflected once you empower Technical Experts to bring innovation. The task of people management goes hand in hand.
