Just read the "Professional Awareness in Software Engineering" from Tom DeMarco. (see here) which is a nice essay about professionalism and what most managers miss for being a professional and the reasons for that.
I can recommend this short article.
Besides I can recommend to read Tom DeMarco in general. Or at least "Spielraeume" and "Der Termin" which I read in German.
And now I am confused and thinking about me and if I can consider myself as a Software professional or not and how I could transform to a management professional???? mmmhhhhh.
So I better go to bed and think about it
