Starting to manage a development teamKris (858209) writes "I'm a programmer and have been for the past 9 years — and for 3 of these years I've started a small media agency with two colleagues — a business advisor and a graphics designer, however in the past 12 months the business has expanded rapidly where now, as well as some outsourcing we've now got 2 more developers directly under me. Unfortunately I've never had any management experience — and I'm not really sure where to start.
Time planning etc. is fine as I've aways done this with my own workflow — however some of the softer skills and general people management I have a real problem with. Has anyone here been in a similar position where they've 'fallen into' a management position? And have some advice?"
