in thread What is a programmer?

Using the terminology of Pete McBreen's wonderful Software Craftsmanship, Perrin is a master programmer. Generally you only want one master programmer working on a project, a bunch of journeymen and a few apprentices. The master makes the big decisions, but delegates many decisions to his journeymen who may in turn delegate to apprentices.

Note too that just because one knows how to do something doesn't mean one has to do it. Given good people filling the various other roles one can delegate upwards too. But when the buck stops with you (and if you think it doesn't then you're fooling yourself) then you must be aware of the issues and be prepared to nip problems in the bud.
