Principles of Software Development Leadership: Applying Project Management Principles to Agile Software Development

principles-of-software-development-leadershipAuthor:  Ken Whitaker

Publisher: Cengage Learning © 2010 (488 pages)

ISBN: 9781584505860

            The software development market continues to grow worldwide. As projects become more complicated and the pressure to “do more with less” becomes the rule of thumb, the need for software managers to be well-versed with project management best practices becomes even more critical. Ultimately, every software development leader’s primary responsibility is to lead their organization to deliver quality products on time and under budget, but until now, there hasn’t been a concise set of principles for managers to follow to ensure these goals are met. “Principles of Software Development Leadership: Applying Project Management Principles to Agile Software Development” successfully integrates principles outlined by PMI in its Project Management Body of Knowledge with software leadership best practices. It provides all levels of software management, from program managers and project managers to software executives, with a set of best practices that will collectively create successful outcomes, and in turn will motivate software teams to deliver quality products on time. Especially important in today’s fast-paced environment, Principles of Software Development Leadership also shows software managers how to deliver quality products on time through the management of the relationship between planning, process, and people.Tips are presented on how to run software development like a business, master scheduling, track improvement, find and retain talent, and much more.

Software Project Management: Measures for Improving Performance

software-project-management-measures-for-improving-performanceAuthor:  Robert Bruce Kelsey

Publisher: Management Concepts © 2006 (230 pages)

ISBN: 9781567261738

“Software Project Management: Measures for Improving Performance” focuses on more than the mechanics of project execution. By showing the reader how to identify and solve real world problems that put schedule, cost, and quality at risk, this guide gets to the heart of improving project control and performance. It helps you to: identify measurement needs and goals; determine what measures to use to maximize the value of data; interpret data and report the results; diagnose quality and productivity issues; and, use metrics data to solve real problems. This is a must-read for project managers and engineering managers working in organizations where deadlines are tight, the workload is daunting, and daily crises are the rule rather than the exception. The text provides simple run rate data through progressively advanced measures, as well as: examples that show you how to combine measures to solve complex problems; and, exercises that guide you through best practices for metric program development and implementation.

Effective Software Project Management

effective-software-project-managementAuthor:  Robert K. Wysocki

Publisher:  John Wiley & Sons © 2006 (668 pages)

ISBN: 9780764596360

            Why another book on software project management? For some time, the fields of project management, computer science, and software development have been growing rapidly and concurrently. Effective support for the enterprise demands the merging of these efforts into a coordinated discipline, one that incorporates best practices from both systems development and project management life cycles. Robert K. Wysocki creates that discipline in this book – a ready reference for professionals and consultants as well as a textbook for students of computer information systems and project management. By their very nature, software projects defy a “one size fits all” approach. In these pages you will learn to apply best-practice principles while maintaining the flexibility that’s essential for successful software development. Learn how to make the planning process fit the need. Understand how and why software development must be planned on a certainty-to-uncertainty continuum. Categorize your projects on a four-quadrant model. Learn when to use each of the five SDPM strategies – Linear, Incremental, Iterative, Adaptive, and Extreme. Explore the benefits of each strategic model and what types of projects it supports best. Recognize the activities that go into the Scoping, Planning, Launching, Monitoring/Controlling, and Closing phases of each strategy. Apply this knowledge to the specific projects you manage. Get a clear picture of where you are and how to get where you want to go.

Process-Based Software Project Management

process-based-software-project-managementAuthor: F. Alan Goodman

Publisher: Auerbach Publications © 2006 (246 pages)

ISBN: 9780849373046

            Not connecting software project management (SPM) to actual, real-world development processes can lead to a complete divorcing of SPM to software engineering that can undermine any successful software project. By explaining how a layered process architectural model improves operational efficiency, Process-Based Software Project Management outlines a new method that is more effective than the traditional method when dealing with SPM. With a clear and easy-to-read approach, the book discusses the benefits of an integrated project management?process management connection. The described tight coupling of the process world to the SPM world provides a high degree of completeness and accuracy necessary for effective project management.

Corporate Software Project Management

corporate-software-project-managementAuthor: Guy W. Lecky-Thompson

Publisher: Cengage Charles River Media © 2005 (400 pages)

ISBN: 9781584503859

It has long been accepted in the software industry that projects will be late, over budget, and lacking in agreed upon features due to technical or time limitations. As more companies become involved with the development and deployment of large-scale software projects, it is necessary to define ways to ensure that quality products are produced. Corporate Software Engineering teaches the three main areas for efficient software development: management, quality, and client relations. It provides a series of globally applicable methods that can enhance productivity and reduce costs within software teams, without sacrificing quality. The book deals with both the management aspects and the technical side of software engineering. Examples of how software can be designed to maximize code for future projects are also included. Corporate Software Engineering provides managers, developers, and programmers with methodologies and techniques that will help them produce quality products from start to finish.
