Beyond Chaos: The Expert Edge in Managing Software Development (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


In Beyond Chaos, legendary software engineer Larry Constantine brings together 28 outstanding essays on software project management, straight from the must-read Management Forum column in Software Development Magazine. Critically important reading for every software manager and engineer, this book covers an extraordinarily wide range of issues -- with equally impressive depth. You'll find Karl Wiegers on the basics of project management, and Capers Jones on software productivity measurement; Steve McConnell on managing outsourced projects and Michael Vizard on the need for stronger software professional standards. From Lucy Lockwood on aligning development with e-Business, to Ed Yourdon on surviving software "death marches," it's here: dealing with difficult people, sustaining teamwork, coping with project failure, managing from the bottom up, and much more. There are also four essays by Larry Constantine himself, covering requirements, development culture, modeling, and other key issues.
