Overview

SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT: A PROJECT MANAGEMENT APPROACH by Mcleod and Jordan,  provides thorough coverage of the entire system development life cycle. This text is intended to provide student teams with the methodologies and tools necessary to create a system for a real organization, or for a case problem based on a real development challenge.

FEATURES

  • A balanced coverage of each phase of the system development life cycle—covering construction and installation as thoroughly as analysis and design.
  • A project management emphasis that describes the planning and control mechanism for each stage of systems development, and offers multiple project management tools.
  • A blend of structured and object-oriented coverage, so that users can choose which methodology to emphasize.
  • A running case that describes how a student team conducts a client project, with 48 examples of techniques.
  • A robust, course-tested Web site that provides students with class notes, blank forms, self tests, and review topics, and materials relating to the client project.
  • Classroom software that enables students to play the "What If" game in performing a cost-benefit analysis and estimating project costs.
  • A complete set of templates that students can use to apply the systems concepts to their development projects.
