As a general question, I'd be interested in hearing what people believe is needed to go from a developer to a development manager (or other manager in IT). What is generally needed as far as skills, training, or other. Also, what are the concerns you would have in being promoted to such a position? If you've been through this transition, then what did you find to be the issues?

If you respond to any of my questions above, also indicate if you are a developer, manager, or if you are in a different position. This will help in understanding your response.
