      I'm a people person. I talk to the customers so the engineers don't have to.

      He’s the standard engineer. He doesn’t make mistakes or bad decisions

      God I wish I could get a standard engineer. I keep getting these rockstar engineers that make mistakes constantly.

    Managers manage people. As long as people are going to be people, you'll have people managers. That being said, the manager:executor ratio is going to keep decreasing and the managers role is going to keep getting dumber.

    Agile requires more overhead, not less. Scrum masters and product owners etc and it doesn’t even remove the need for managers.

    AI. What does it do for you? Other than pie in the sky ideas.

    PM software requires people to fill their shit out. As someone who used to have a manager hassle me and as a manager who now hassles his team, the software doesn’t negate need for manager. Dedicated responsibilities? Like what...management? :)

    Not saying there isn’t too much management overhead, but all of the changes in the last decade have required more management, not less.
