Antipatterns, 2nd Edition

Book description

Using real and hypothetical case studies, this book illustrates poor management approaches, unpleasant work environments, and bad manager traits that lead to failure. For each antipattern, the text describes the situation and symptoms, gives examples, and offers a refactoring solution. The authors provide real-world anecdotes that illustrate key concepts. They also include thought-provoking exercises that describe a situation and ask which antipatterns are present, as well as how to refactor the situation. Coverage includes leadership principles, environmental antipatterns, group patterns, management antipatterns, and team leadership.
