Software development teams no longer live—or want to live—in a world of command and control. They want to be self-organizing and have adaptive, supportive, and collaborative leadership guiding them. This new age of management requires managers to build a culture of trust, encourage participation of their teams in decision making, and sponsor innovation. Simply put, managers need to do away with the traditional (micro) management and share power with self-organizing teams.
