Welcome to Herding Tigers!

This site is the place to talk about the new book “Herding Tigers-Business, Software and the Art of War”. I wish everyone here the very best.


Writing Herding Tigers has changed my life. I can’t thank you all enough for your support!

    Where is your manual?

  2. Ken Sitz says:

    Congrats on launching a web presence for the Tigers.

    I’m looking forward to a reading list on software development and leadership (or LEADERSHIP if you prefer) and volunteer my help.

    An expansive glossary would be a good idea too – a fun way to introduce related ideas and point to a bibliography.

    Good luck with the LA Ruby talk!

  3. Brad says:

    Not really a programmer just write some helping scripts for my Network Engineering job. But I liked your presentation at Ruby Conf MW 2009. Always been a a Patton booster . . . but his tactics tend not to blend well Business politics. This sometimes gets me into trouble, so look forward to your book.

      Yes, Patton was a flawed man. I’m trying to learn to be a more political animal. I used to just lash out at cows and sheep, but you can get fired as well. Patton was fired before he died in a car crash.

      You will do great things if you keep your courage up, keep learning, and don’t let the cows get you down!

  9. Marie Chantal says:

    Hi there!
    I am an aspiring leader and manager in public health care in Québec, Canada. I watched your conference (Ruby 2009) with my husband (he is a software engineer) and we both loved it. I am presently writing a university paper about leadership and your book is helping a lot. Thank you for the inspiration and keep on the excellent work; we need more leaders like you!

    • admin says:

      Thank you Marie! Leadership is the least understood and least valued skill I have come upon in business. I’m trying to change that.

  10. While this topic can be very difficult for most people, my belief is that there has to be a middle or common ground that we all can find. I do value that you’ve added pertinent and intelligent thoughts here though. Very much thanks to you!
