Software effort estimation is one of the oldest and most important problems in software project management, and thus today there are a large number of models, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses in general, and even more importantly, in relation to the environment and context in which it is to be applied.

Trendowicz and Jeffery present a comprehensive look at the principles of software effort estimation and support software practitioners in systematically selecting and applying the most suitable effort estimation approach. Their book not only presents what approach to take and how to apply and improve it, but also explains why certain approaches should be used in specific project situations. Moreover, it explains popular estimation methods, summarizes estimation best-practices, and provides guidelines for continuously improving estimation capability. Additionally, the book offers invaluable insights into project management in general, discussing issues including project trade-offs, risk assessment, and organizational learning.

Overall, the authors deliver an essential reference work for software practitioners responsible for software effort estimation and planning in their daily work and who want to improve their estimation skills. At the same time, for lecturers and students the book can serve as the basis of a course in software processes, software estimation, or project management.

Review:

"It is the most complete work on all aspects of software effort estimation that I have seen. It provides an excellent reference for the field and belongs on the bookshelf of every organization that needs to manage a software project." from the foreword by Victor Basili, University of Maryland, USA

"This dense book would serve as a reference in a software library, and would be a great resource for software engineering students, as well as managers, engineers, and architects." Naga Narayanaswamy, ACM Computing Reviews, December 2014
