"Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what

they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand."
Putt's Law
Early Praise for Putt's Law and the Successful Technocrat:
"This is management writing the way it ought to be. Think Dilbert, but with

a very big brain. Read it and weep. Or laugh, depending on your current job

Spectral Lines, IEEE Spectrum, April 2006
"It's a classic. It reads at first like humor, but one eventually realizes

that it's all true. The first edition changed my life. I loaned my copy to

a subordinate at IBM, and he didn't return it to me until he was my boss."
Dave Thompson, PhD, IBM Fellow (retired), Member National Academy of

Engineering, and IEEE Fellow
"Putt's humor ranges from sharp to whimsical and is always on target.

Readers will be reminded of many personal experiences and of lessons in

life they wish they had learned earlier in their careers."
Eric Herz, former IEEE executive director and general manager
"Anyone who thinks 'engineering management' is an oxymoron needs to read

this terrific book then they will know."
Norman R. Augustine, author of Augustine's Laws and retired Chairman & CEO

of Lockheed Martin Corporation
Putt's Law is as true today as it was when techno-everyman Archibald Putt

first stated it. Now, in Putt's Law and the Successful Technocrat: How to

Win in the Information Age, Putt is back with the unvarnished truth about

success in the modern, technology-driven organization.
As you learn the real rules of the technology world, you'll meet such

characters as the successful technocrat, Dr. I. M. Sharp. You'll find out

how he wrangles career victories from corporate failures, nearly

bankrupting the firm with his projects while somehow emerging the hero.

You'll also meet such unfortunates as Roger Proofsworthy, top-level

perfectionist yet low in the hierarchy, and come to understand how he

assiduously preserves his spot near the bottom of the totem pole.
Whether you work in business, IT, or are a freelance technocrat, you'll

want to study Putt's hard-won wisdom and laughall the way to the bank!
