The schedule of an applications development manager varies. Being both technical and business-minded in nature, an applications development manager must allocate a certain portion out of a weekly schedule for meetings. These meetings serve to help applications developers provide status updates to the manager, resolve issues, and keep all team members synchronized with the objectives created by the applications development manager.
These managers typically must have a bachelor's degree in computer science, information technology, or another similar field of study. In addition to having technical skills, an applications development manager is expected to be effective at managing people; often, an advanced degree in business administration is strongly preferred. They must also have experience as both a member of technical staff and in technical management roles; on average, between five and 10 years of previous relevant experience is usually considered desirable.
