Editorial Reviews

Booknews
You proved you're one of the best programmers around, and part of the plea bargain was that you go straight. So you end up in charge of a software development project with deliverables to produce, standards and procedures to observe, plans and budgets to meet and a bunch of strangers to manage and report to. Yikes! Here is a guide to how software development succeeds and fails, the key skills of a good project manager, the main stages and steps, some suggestions on what to do if things start to go wrong, and descriptions of books to tell you more.
