A practical guide for engineering managers at tech companies
The Engineering Manager’s How-To Guide is written by an engineering manager (yours truly) for engineering managers.
When I first became an engineering manager, I wasn’t as effective as I could have been. I’ve always been an avid reader, I’ve read many leadership books, I could recite paragraphs from Simon Sinek’s famous book, Start With Why and I could retell all the stories from Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People. Don’t get me wrong, those books were totally amazing, and they helped me in being a great people manager but I wasn’t a very effective engineering manager. Looking back, I realised it was because I was missing pieces of the puzzle in engineering leadership; processes and products. I’ve got the people’s part down pat but when it came to processes and products, there was room for improvement.
Therefore, I decided to write this book. The book is very targeted for engineering managers, and in this book, you won’t find generic advice like having regular 1:1’s, giving feedback, etc. Yes, those things are absolutely important, but they are not specific to an engineering manager’s role. It’s my goal to make sure this book provides a concise and actionable guide for engineering managers, the specific and niche content for engineering managers that you won’t find in other leadership and management books.
This book contains:
- 200+ pages
- 15+ chapters
- Actionable How-to content in epub and pdf formats
- Key takeaways at the end of each chapter for easy consumption

PS: I am including a free bonus to those who purchase the book this month only, a sample document consisting of the career objectives of a mid-level engineering manager so that you can get inspiration for your career goals.
