Technical People, Managerial People

Technical people don't like their non-technical managers making technical decisions in specifications.
Managerial people don't like their non-managerial reports making business decisions in code.

Technical people don't like the extra maintenance caused by rushing out incomplete, buggy and untested products.
Managerial people don't like the costs and lost revenue of delayed product launches and missed deadlines.

Technical people don't like business issues limiting technical implementation.
Managerial people don't like technical issues limiting commercial activity.

Technical people know they could do a better job than their management, but would miss doing the technical work.
Managerial people know they could do a better job if they weren't so busy managing things.
