Normally I love Jakob Nielsen and can’t wait to hear from him.
This week Jakob Nielsen posted an article that’s supposed to tell you how to retain key staff. Now, I read the article again and again and it just doesn’t say anything. All it does is list a bunch of things and then asserts that they don’t work.
For those of you who are feeling a bit empty after that, may I point you to:
- my article on attracting programmers
- my article on managing programmers
- the book Peopleware, far better than anything I could write. Managers who understand and implement the philosophies of Peopleware have virtually no turnover.
