There’s an excellent Google TechTalk by Mary Poppendieck on the history of management/leadership organization, starting with railroads in the 1840’s and working through WWII and many of the buzzwords we soaked up in the 1990’s.

By the end, she brings it back around to software engineering teams and identifies two essential leadership roles. Well worth the 90 minutes.
