Re: New IT Skills: Why Communication, Accountability, Initiative Are Hot Now
@David - I think this is also the problem when people become managers, especially in IT. As discussed on "IT Life Radio: Be A Better Manager" regarding the book "The Unbossy Boss: 12 Powerful Questions to Make You a Better Manager," the reason most people are promoted into managerial positions is they were high performing individuals. That doesn't translate well into "high performing manager of other people" or even "works well with other people."
But yes, grading "group" work is near impossible to do in the traditional sense of grading. Whenever I was put into those situations I ended up being the workhorse in a stable of ponies.
