Overview

The single biggest cause of failure of any object-based project begins with software managers and either their lack of understanding of the technology or their inability to recognize that OT projects must be managed differently. What Every Software Manager Must Know to Succeed with Object Technology shows managers what object technology is and how to manage it effectively. Readers are provided with a no-nonsense approach to making object technology work, including effective guidelines on how to manage and track the development of projects. Although other books on the market position themselves as software management guides, to date, only this book truly addresses the substantive issues that managers alone must deal with when implementing object technology. The book begins with a simple example to outline the technology and then shows managers the choices and tradeoffs available with object technology. Then a real-world example is used to show where the reality of developing object-oriented systems differs from the theory. Of particular interest to software managers are the details of how to track and report progress on projects using iterative development techniques. Other issues of importance to managers include how to migrate legacy systems to object technology, how to develop reusable code, how to transition an organization to object technology, how to improve the quality of your software while reducing time to market, and how to choose a methodology.
