QuestionWhy is my code being 'peer reviewed' and changed -- duplicating work that I've already done -- before I turn in my completed task? Pin

I've still got two books on my main bookshelf which puts them a cut above 'the rest', though neither are about software specifically:
The Rise of the Player Manager : How professionals manage whilst they work, by Philip Augar & Joy Palmer
and the one I wish I'd bought and understood earlier (though I was too busy coding)
Successful Project Managers : Leading your team to success by Jeffrey K. Pinto & O.P. Kharabanda

I'd make a point of attending any leadership, communication, change, project management etc. courses your employer offers. And if they don't offer them make a point of picking some out and getting them to send you on them. Just chatting to people in the same boat does help, you realise you're not the only one with similar problems. Now points from books or courses often pop back into my mind when certain circumstances occur.

The sort of once a month evening meetings local professional associations put on can also help out. Maybe an institution you belong to runs a Mentor scheme? or maybe your organization does?

The other thing you need is support from your manager, especially if he or she was in charge before you got promoted. You might get sick of hearing variations of the phrase "XXXXX didn't use to do it this way". If this is a problem, have a conversation and sort out who's in charge of who, and politely put across any points to prevent any undermining of your position.

This is bringing it all back, I think I'll go and lie down.
