This thesis is an analytical study that investigates the characteristics of software engineering managers, their training, and their background, and relates these factors to their effectiveness. This thesis develops and uses two questionnaires to collect the necessary data from entry level managers and their subordinates. A portion of the questionnaires is the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, which is an implementation of the Jung theory of type. This thesis concludes from the collected data that software engineers promoted into supervisory positions lack needed training to perform their jobs effectively. This thesis further concludes that there are differences in the personality type of software engineers and software engineering managers.Chairperson: Nanette Levinson.
