About this title


The only guide to managing and integrating the open source model
With the phenomenal success of Linux, companies are taking open source business solutions much more seriously than ever before. This book helps to satisfy the growing demand for guidance on how to manage open source enterprise development projects. Expert Jan Sandred explores the open source philosophy, describes current software tools for managing open source projects, and provides expert guidance on how to organize and manage open source projects using the Internet as a collaboration tool. With the help of several fascinating and instructive case studies, Sandred explores practical concerns such as building, motivating, and managing virtual teams; structuring tasks and meeting deadlines; establishing trust; project management software tools; maintaining project security; and more.

From the Back Cover:

Expert advice and practical guidance on developing and managing an open source project
Managing an open source project requires a different approach to management and leadership. If managed the right way, open source can deliver industrial-strength systems that meet users' needs and provide solutions that are fully extendible and maintainable over a long period of time. The resulting code will also be much more consistent and easier to maintain.

This book reveals the new possibilities and opportunities that open source and the Internet create so you can make the right software decisions for your business. Drawing on his own extensive experience, Jan Sandred clearly shows you how to organize and manage open source projects by using the Internet as a collaboration tool. He begins by presenting a brief history of open source and then discusses the different business and project management aspects. Sandred also offers in-depth descriptions of the software tools available for building open source sites and explains the steps that are necessary for setting up an open source project. And he provides you with advice and assistance on working with open source in a network organization.

With the help of several fascinating and instructive case studies, this book explores practical concerns such as:
* Building, motivating, and managing virtual teams
* Structuring tasks and meeting deadlines
* Establishing trust within a team in order to successfully manage a project
* Utilizing the latest project management software tools
* Collecting and communicating information from an open source perspective
* Effectively using the Web to integrate and manage the open source model
* Maintaining project security
