Humphrey, the driving force behind the CMM, PSP, and TSP methodologies, and one of world's most respected experts in software process improvement. Specific prescriptions and techniques for reshaping software organizations and processes to drive remarkable financial returns. Supported by copious data from real organizations. Most executives think of software as a necessary evil - but, in reality, software offers them invaluable opportunities to become more competitive. Forwardlooking executives have come to realize that software can be a powerful business asset, but realizing this is the easy part. The hard part is making it happen. That's what this book is about. World-renowned software process and quality expert Watts S. Humphrey has brought together concrete prescriptions and software engineering techniques that are proven to work. Humphrey systematically demonstrates how to reshape a company's software organization and processes to drive remarkable financial returns - and presents real data to support his techniques and claims. As the inventor and driving force behind the CMM, PSP, and TSP methodologies, Humphrey is one of the world's most widely known software engineering gurus. In recent years, his message has been increasingly heard by the broader business community; for example, he was recently profiled by BusinessWeek. This book will reach Humphrey's growing worldwide audience of executives and managers: people who have come to recognize that in the 21st century, every business is a software business.
