Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Software project management principles are presented, in a friendly tone, in the same order they appear in actual project progression. This book focuses on applications rather than topics. The culture of a software project team, the leadership technique that will lead to success, and the importance of the process itself are all closely looked at. Multiple sources from both academic and professional situations are integrated into the text to give it a broader feel. Professional Software Engineers; Software Project Management and Project Management courses. Previously announced in the 10/02 catalog.

Synopsis:

- Provides reference to those tools supporting software project management. - Carries a case study through parts two and three. - Integrates multiple sources taken from both academic and professional situations, some taken from the authors personal experience.
