Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Designed as a stand-alone text, this second volume in a three-volume series (the first volume, Systems Thinking, was reviewed in the March 1992 SciTech Book News) illustrates how to more precisely observe and measure the software development process, and offers a four-step model to break the complex process into a series of smaller, simpler steps. It also describes the minimum set of activities for any organization to start a measurement program, as well as the key factors to measure that will help organizations consistently produce the quality software they want.
