What’s your IT management style?

Do you drive the employees under your management really hard until they achieve your department’s goals? Do you value workers only for their accomplishments? Do you prefer participative form of management where individuals are free to develop and contribute solutions to a problem?

In this month’s issue of Computing Canada, we take a look at how successful IT leaders employ their own management style in tackling day-to-day challenges as well as achieving their company’s long term goals.
