-Some organizations try to structure the Development Manager role by function. So, for example, if you have developers, they report up a development tree, QA up the QA tree, operations up the operations tree. For some organizations this is less of an impact to put in place because it already basically exists. The pros of this approach is that the Development Manager might have a better handle how to develop the skills in a particular discipline. The downside of this trade-off is that often the structure leads to a non-local Development Manager.+Some organizations try to structure the Development Manager role by function.

For some organizations this is less of an impact to put in place because it already basically exists. The pros of this approach is that the Development Manager might have a better handle how to develop the skills in a particular discipline. The approach is more “skills family” oriented. The downside of this trade-off is that often the structure leads to a non-local Development Manager.
  
 Some organizations take this to the next level. They have the Development Manager "​tree"​ report to some time top level manager independent of program. This approach can be useful for organizations that need to signal a radical change ("no, we are serious, Product Owners are not also supervisors"​) and / or establish the role ("we are going to have a number of Development Managers and need some degree of consistency"​). Often this approach is set up initially with a view of moving to the more "​Program"​ approach over time. Other times the approach stays and the organization becomes "​talent management"​. Some organizations take this to the next level.
