comment I'm a manager. How can I improve work relationships and communication with programmers?
Agreed! I'd call that "attempting to be psychic and failing" - when in doubt, it's good to check in words.

comment Not getting paid for hours you've worked?
If that's how your manager works, I suggest getting a new one... speaking as a manager, I generally get feedback from my team about time estimates, particularly when the work is new, risky, or otherwise difficult. About the only time I don't is when I have a very good basis for estimate (like great historical info). Not to say I don't fight for the team to work "smart not hard" and be as efficient as possible... but I don't dictate how that happens, and I don't wing an estimate w/out checking in...

comment Funding Agile Projects
I wonder if you can steal from a contracting model? It does add the risk of downtime if customers abruptly say "thanks but no", which should be similar to the model of contract labor?
