Software product management training for newsroom managers/editors?

As journalists learn programming and programmers learn journalism and then go to work in newsrooms, shouldn't there also be a parallel movement to offer newsroom managers/editors training in managing the creation of software, which is a role that's going to be a natural result of the journo-hacker thing?

Seems it would benefit both the newsroom editors/managers and the programmers they supervise if the managers had at least passing familiarity with concepts such as Hofstadter's' Law, the virtues of a programmer, extreme programming and most importantly The Mythical Man-Month.

Does anyone know if the Poynter/Nieman/Knight Digital Media Center of the world offer such? Or if they've ever?
