Book Description Tata McGraw-Hill Education Pvt. Ltd., 2005. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Praise for the book "The book is a well-timed and well-deserved addition to the `core? books that comprise the growing literature on managing large complex software development projects that are developed by professional teams distributed across the globe. the credentials, credibility and rich experience of the author gives the right stamp of approval for the work reported in the book; the author has demonstrated his ability to execute high-quality, large-scale projects for Oracle - the global `thought leader` in software - using teams that span multiple timezones, cultures and languages during some of the most exciting and most difficult periods. -Business Line Sowmyanarayanan Sadagopan Director, Indian Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore "The strength of the book lies in providing live, real-life approach to software project management to an extent it demystifies the complexities. -Deccan Herald T R Madanmohan "This book holds special relevance and is very appropriately time. For one, the `off-shore development? and the `India Development Center` model is gaining enormous popularity. This means that whoever is in the business of software exports will invariably end up working in this model. Project management in this case would assume a whole new dimension over and above the `plain vanilla? project management that most managers are trained in. Things like `distributed engineering and handling `multi-site? projects will be inevitable. Most treatises miss out on this, but this book is pragmatic." ?Softwaredioxide com Software development worldover has drastically changed and the rules of the game are being continually rewritten.
