The software industry's phenomenal growth over the past 10 years presents significant challenges for management. The author describes how management issues in software differ from those in hardware development, and he proposes 10 areas of leadership competency that software managers need in order to succeed: (1) business literacy; (2) technology vision; (3) cross-functional orientation; (4) strategic partnership management; (5) customer relations; (6) total quality discipline; (7) market decisiveness; (8) technical teamwork; (9) knowledge development; and (10) leadership versatility
