This is a Blog about my experience managing software development projects.

Big projects (at work).

Small projects (what little spare time is left).

Software aspects.

People aspects.

Organizational aspects.

It’s called “Think and Feel” because, unlike common behaviour of software managers, management of software development projects is at least as much related to people and their hopes and fears as it is to relatively hard technical skills. Only where “thinking” (hard technical skills) and “feeling” (empathy) meet will projects succeed.

We all know: software projects don’t fail for the technology – they do fail for the people.

Me, that is Josef Dietl – at present, a guy running software development projects at SAP AG. Earlier, I was working for the W3C and for CompuServe Germany.
Needless to say, the opinions expressed here are mine, not necessarily those of my employer.
