Microservices are where it's at. Everything is easier to manage when it's micro, right?

'Micro' things may appear to be easier to manage, but there is always a macro context, and working with people and teams is no exception.

Topics covered include: empathy - because understanding others is at the heart of everything you do; leadership - advice on creating shared understanding, conveying strategy, and developing your team; organisational structure - from Zappos' holocracy to MegaOrg's strict hierarchy, from Spotify's squads, chapters and guilds, to BigCorp's command and control. There is a management style for everybody; and more
