  • The book is organized around basic principles of software project management: planning and estimating, measuring and controlling, leading and communicating, and managing risk.
  • Introduces software development methods, from traditional (hacking, requirements to code, and waterfall) to iterative (incremental build, evolutionary, agile, and spiral).
  • Illustrates and emphasizes tailoring the development process to each project, with a foundation in the fundamentals that are true for all development methods.
  • Topics such as the WBS, estimation, schedule networks, organizing the project team, and performance reporting are integrated, rather than being relegating to appendices.
  • Each chapter in the book includes an appendix that covers the relevant topics from CMMI-DEV-v1.2, IEEE/ISO Standards 12207, IEEE Standard 1058, and the PMI® Body of Knowledge.

From the Back Cover:

Discover the fundamental techniques for managing and leading software projects

This book bridges the communication gap between project managers and software developers working toward the common goal of developing successful software products and software systems. It provides the insights, methods, tools, and techniques necessary to understand the basic principles of software project management: planning and estimating, measuring and controlling, leading and communicating, and managing risk. It introduces software development methods, from?traditional (hacking, requirements to code, and waterfall) to iterative (incremental build, evolutionary, agile, and spiral), and illustrates and emphasizes how to tailor the development process to specific projects.

By reading this text and working through the exercises provided in each chapter, readers will learn how software projects differ from other kinds of projects (i.e., construction, agricultural, manufacturing, administrative, and traditional engineering projects), and how the methods and techniques of project management can be modified and adapted for software projects.

Three appendices contain a glossary of terms, which is based on and augments IEEE Standard 610; suggestions for term projects; and an annotated template for preparingsoftware project management plans. Additionally, a URL listed in the Preface directs readers to a Web site that provides supporting materials for the text.

Clearly written and easy to follow, this book serves as an accessible textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level software engineering courses, as well as a valuable reference for software developers and software project managers.
