M1sf3t224515dManagers being non-technical isn't always a problem, it's when they frequently overstep themselves that it becomes a problem.
Management has its own skillset involved and a lot of technical people don't even have the skills to manage themselves.
Root5583715dYou are both correct.
C0D44671415dI'm with @Root on this one.
Non tech managers with the right processors and leadership and people skills can cross into the tech world and still get things done.
Non tech managers who are focused only on the $$$$ - well I've done that, it doesn't end well.
Now the same goes the other way, not all tech minded people are suitable for management or leadership as they are to closed minded to the job at hand rather then the bigger picture and lack the people skills.
But get the right person for the position and things go smoothly.
