I agree with Zurodev, the combination of technical skills and the ability to manage people is very rare, I met very few in the 40 years in the industry. I have seen 2 or 3 successfully move from development into management, I have seen many more (including me) fail miserably when pushed into management.

I also know of an organisation that has a permanent, dedicated team looking for such people and they have a retainer package to attract the best.
