I'd like to agree that this is a sad and all-too-common
problem. I'd also like to say that I've seen companies
get this right with good management, good programmers
who make good managers, promoting good programmers that
don't make good managers so they don't feel the need to
become bad managers for the promotion, etc.
Sure, this is still the exception. But there are good
books on how to manager software development well and I've
seen those techniques work.
