#71: “Stumbling into Dev Management” with James Stanier of Shopify | Educative Sessions

Dr. James Stanier never intended to become a manager, let alone a Director or VP. He certainly never intended to publish a book about it either! Dr. Stanier shares his story from doing a Ph.D. to failing to get an academic job to joining a start-up which grew rapidly through numerous venture capital investment rounds. After reading lots of books on management in the “business” world, he applied what he knew to help shape the Engineering department at Brandwatch and now Shopify.

Dr. James Stanier is (soon to be) Director of Engineering @ Shopify, and before that was SVP Engineering at Brandwatch. He runs and has published Become An Effective Software Engineering Manager with Pragmatic Programmers, which will soon be a course on Educative. There’s another book on remote working in the works too.

Inventory management is the system you build to organize inventory through the supply chain. It covers all steps, from raw goods to finished goods, storing, and selling. It also tracks your company’s stocked goods and monitors their weight, dimensions, amounts, and location. The goal of inventory management is to minimize the cost of holding inventory by helping you know when it’s time to replenish products or buy more materials to manufacture them. This helps you maintain optimal inventory levels and minimize costs. Inventory control can be used interchangeably with inventory management. Essentially, it refers to when you have control over your stock, typically due to effective inventory management processes.
