You might think that A rocker’s guide to management sounds like one of those “What X can teach us about Y” articles. And it is, I guess, on the surface. But it’s just so well done. As an intro:

The article is less about management, and more about the different ways that teams can be structured, as well as the good things and pitfalls of each approach.
