An emerging servant-leader understands and behaves in a manner consistent with improving along these 10 dimensions with each leadership opportunity.
You need some experience. But, likely as you mentioned, need lots of real world examples from which he has extracted general, "abstract" lessons. He has terrific stuff. He is an excellent observer and, then, analyst of what the heck he saw.
I put the text in my collection of management essays and regard it as by a wide margin the best management advice I've found for my startup: Currently I'm a sole, solo founder, so far have done it all, including all the important work and a lot of grunt work, but if my startup is successful then I'll have to hire and manage, all of it.
Sure, eventually I'll get a COO and delegate a lot to them, but, still I'll have to know what's going on. And there will have to be more software development; I'll have to manage that either directly or through, say, a CTO or CIO, and that essay is the best advice I've seen so far.
Brooks is deeper in technical issues; the OP is better in the human and management issues which, IMHO, is where the real problems really are. Oh, by the way, I still believe that nearly all the best ideas in software management I've heard about are old although I do have along list of questions where the old stuff doesn't give good answers and where I haven't seen good answers either old or new.
And I believe that A code without good documentation is essentially worthless, B the documentation is more work than the code, and C between the code and the documentation, if I had to save just one, it would be the documentation. So, in particular, for the work, the most important part of it is writing documentation; writing the code is the lesser part.
And D my view of writing code is that it's simple: Start with a good description of i the programming language to be used and ii good descriptions of the functions, classes, APIs, etc.
Those issues are to be clear in appropriate parts of the documentation and not to be worked out only during the coding. From what I learned from before the OP, although the OP has it better but maybe not as explicit, here are two lessons: If you see a person in an organization and some work they might do, ideas they might have, etc.
What's important here for a manager is not how YOU would answer this question but how you would anticipate that subordinate, other person, would answer the question.
To be cynical, just because some area A is in the person's area of work, for some work X, will they actually do X and do it well? First way to know is, how would that person answer "Why should I do X"?
To be cynical and likely often realistic, without a good answer, the person may simply neglect to do X. Most organizations, when they see a snake, form a committee on snakes. In a good organization, when someone sees a snake, they kill it.
Well, then, the answer to "Why should I kill the snake" is that Perot had a good organization. There is a field, with courses, in public administration, business schools, and parts of sociology called organizational behavior.Downsizing, layoffs, re-engineering, reshaping, reduction in force (RIF), mergers, early retirement, and outplacement—the description of these increasingly familiar changes has become a matter of commonplace jargon around the world in the past two decades.
