Technology based companies are constantly seeking ways to assure that engineering managers are successful both as an engineer and as a manager. Since most engineering managers start as engineers, it is interesting to ask "What makes an effective engineer also an effective manager?" With this project we attempt to answer a small part of this question with empirical analysis. One of the tools used was controlled analysis, with which we test the hypothesis that formal management training is required for an engineer to be an effective and successful manager.
