For friends and family who read the blog, and that includes Mac, who has mused on the topic numerous times, I am no longer development, strictly speaking, but management. In two weeks, I switch roles, moving back to a department I've been a part of in the past to take on a role that's sort of on the other side of the fence from where I am now (i.e. I may engage someone in my current role; it just won't be myself). I've enjoyed my current position, but I'm at an interesting crossroads where I have a very good blend of technical skills and organizational/managerial skills. If I ever wanted to transition into a role with a managerial scope in technology, it seemed like the perfect time. It seems at least slightly validating that after six interviews I'm not the only one who thinks so.

I'm interested in two things:

1) Please elaboration on your next role? Please don't tell me "Project Manager".

2) Give me your thought process on wanting to move into management. I'm interested in why people try to torture themselves.
