Two good books I can suggest on management (generic, not necessarily covering what you want) -

(1) Mythical Man Month, old classic
(2) Everyone needs a mentor

So Chetan, you're a manager now?? Wow!!

  • Any project can be estimated accurately (once it's completed).
  • The same work under the same conditions will be estimated differently by ten different estimators or by one estimator at ten different times.
  • To estimate a project, work out how long it would take one person to do it then multiply that by the number of people on the project.
