Summary : So you've been in IT for a while. You've done well. You like your job. When is it time to move on? We aren't talking about finding another job doing the same work. We are talking about making the decision that it's time to bite the bullet and make the dreaded transition into management. For most IT folks management is a dirty word, but should it be? In this talk a senior IT professional, a hybrid engineer/manager and a senior director will talk about the paths that brought them to their positions and why they have chosen to either stay in hands on roles or transition in management roles.
