Essentials of Software Project Management

The traditional project management rules do not apply in the software world. While not all software projects operate in a state of crisis, it is certainly true that most do. Accordingly this book approaches software project management from two directions: (1) how to plan and manage a software project; and (2) how to regain control of a project that has been overwhelmed by events.

Essentials of Software Project Management provides real-world strategies to make every software project more organized and less frantic.

Most IT projects fail to deliver, on average, all IT projects run over schedule by 82%, run over cost by 43% and deliver only 52% of the desired functionality. Pretty dismal statistics. Using the proven methods in this book, every IT project you work on from here on out will have a much higher likelihood of being on time, on budget and higher quality.
This book provides clear, concise, information and hands-on training to give you immediate results. And, the companion Web site provides dozens of templates for managing IT projects. You don't need an advanced degree in project management or a black belt in Six Sigma methodologies to improve your IT project results. What you need is a clear, concise and easy-to-implement system for managing all IT projects.

This book will teach you how to improve your IT project results from start to finish without bogging you down in complex project management jargon or systems. This book provides hands-on training to help you get immediate results. You can read the book straight through or work through it chapter by chapter--either way, you'll pick up invaluable tools to help you on your next (or current) IT project. From idea to implementation, any IT project you work on will benefit immediately from applying the concepts in this book. If you could increase your project's ROI by 80%, reduce your project's schedule by 20% and increase your project success rate by 35%, wouldn't you do that? These statistics are the average improvements seen after implementing IT project management. This book will assist you in improving every aspect of your IT projects and you'll learn to develop the right size plan for your project-- not a one size fits all approach.

Object-Oriented Project Management with UML

Filled with real-world advice for managing software projects, Murray Cantor's Object-Oriented Project Management with UML shows you how to tackle any project using UML and the latest thinking on project management. There's little doubt that this even-handed, commonsensical guide can benefit anyone who manages or designs object-oriented software for a living.

The best thing about this book has to be its honest, real-world mix of software engineering theory and real-world practice for managing object-oriented software development. The author refuses to be doctrinaire and continually offers valuable nuggets of practical advice. Regarding the pitfalls of one software development process, he writes, "I am sure someone has succeeded, but I have never seen it done." Later, he advises managers to "never show panic."

The book doesn't skimp on specifics with a sample case study on a jet fighter trainer simulation system that has a budget of over $22 million. The book also provides real numbers for project estimation, bug tracking, and resource allocation. You'll even find numbers for measuring productivity, including KLOCs. Numerous sample documents (including sample meeting agendas) round out the tour here. The book offers plenty of good advice for working with upper management, customers, and development teams throughout the software development process.

While there's certainly no substitute for actual project management experience, Object-Oriented Project Management with UML may be the next best thing. The author's tour of how to manage object-oriented software development offers dozens of savvy tips and a very thorough guide to using some of the best available techniques for software management. This book is perfect for practically minded IS managers or project leaders who want to see how their software development process can be improved using UML with rigorous management techniques. --Richard Dragan

Topics covered: object-oriented project management overview; obstacles; UML basics; use cases; class diagrams; lifecycle models: waterfall, spiral, RAD; time box model and controlled iteration; Software Development Plans (SDPs); budgeting; project estimation; management tips for inception, elaboration, construction, and transition phases; software metrics: KLOCs and COCOMO; measuring productivity; and sample meeting agendas.

Book Description
Almost all software projects are risky. The goal of every project manager is to somehow deal with the cost and schedule uncertainty while meeting your customer's needs. In Object-Oriented Project Management with UML, Murray Cantor describes an elegant, UML-based approach to managing object-oriented projects guaranteed to deliver high-quality software on time and within budget. * Sample project schedules, budgets, database templates for managing use cases, and a work-breakdown structure
* A spreadsheet workbook for managing incremental development
* A development tracking diagram

Prior to joining TASC, Dr. Cantor was a development manager at IBM, where he oversaw the development of high-end graphics and multimedia systems.

Project Management Step by Step

You've been given a project to run. You know you need to get it right, but you don't know what you need to do and in what order to make sure it all runs smoothly and you come out of it looking great. You need Project Management Step by Step.

Almost every manager and businessperson finds at some time that he or she has to complete a task that has sufficient complexity and importance that an ad-hoc approach to getting it done is just not enough. Managers in this common situation need the structure and rigour of a project management approach, yet very few managers are formally trained in project management or have the inclination, time or finances to become trained. They need an approach they can feel confidant is sufficiently robust to ensure their success, but also simple enough to be immediately applicable. Project Management Step by Step provides the solution to this problem; a practical and immediate way to become a competent project manager.

This is a comprehensive and authoritative guide written and structured in a practical and rapidly applicable style.

Software Project Management in Practice

Aimed at developers and IT managers alike, Software Project Management in Practice offers an invaluable guide to using lightweight software processes in real projects. Filled with sample documents, this book can benefit any organization seeking to improve the ways it manages software.

In an era of ever tighter schedules, implementing a serious software process becomes even more difficult. This book ventures a simple argument: that the techniques for software process management used by InfoSys (a company with a "mature" software process) can be applied to other organizations. Packed with sample documents drawn from real projects, this book is also notable for its clear presentation and the absence of the theoretical and jargon-laden prose that can be found in many software engineering texts.

The author first looks at how to assess a company's software process using the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) and other schemes. Surprisingly, the tools at InfoSys (which earn high CMM marks) are not fancy case tools, but databases, spreadsheets, and Microsoft Project files. Its software process database, for example, allows new projects to reuse existing documents and expertise. After an overview of the modified waterfall model software process used at InfoSys, the author looks at techniques for estimating the size and scope of projects. Then it's on to quality planning. A consistent theme here is that metrics and statistical process control (SPC) should be used to track defects. The book then covers risk assessment and the structure of teams. A standout section on configuration management outlines the role for preserving builds and project documents at each stage of the game.

Later sections examine the actual implementation and deployment of software. The author's argument for peer review of code is a strong one. He details strategies for running design and code reviews (if even by a single person) to catch defects and improper designs, as well as tips for overcoming resistance to such practices.

Sample defect tracking and status for projects also gets its due. Sample documents (using spreadsheets and even the layout of disk directories) to store project information show that a simple approach can yield productive results. The author then shows how to analyze the patterns of defects in software, including how to use statistical techniques to spot out-of-control projects. The book closes with the ways in which a project postmortem (or "project closure analysis") can be used to spot what went wrong and to improve things the next time around.

For both those new to software process or for those who want to see some practical ideas for successful process in a fast-paced world, this concisely packaged title fills a valuable niche with its mix of current thinking on software process and excellent real-world examples. --Richard Dragan

Software Project Secrets: Why Software Projects Fail

Software Project Secrets: Why Software Projects Fail offers a new path to success in the software industry. This book reaches out to managers, developers, and customers who use industry-standard methodologies, but whose projects still struggle to succeed.

Author George Stepanek analyzes the project management methodology itself, a critical factor that has thus far been overlooked. He explains why it creates problems for software development projects and begins by describing 12 ways in which software projects are different from other kinds of projects. He also analyzes the "Project Management Body of Knowledge" to discover 10 hidden assumptions that are invalid in the context of software projects.

Project Management Made Easy

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO GOOD WORK, SUCCEED, AND ENJOY THE PROCESS? I’VE found that owning or working for a small business can be challenging, rewarding, and fun all at once. It isn’t always—and when the stuff hits the fan, the fun is the first thing to go. But if we learn how to get organized and stay on top of things, it can be an exciting ride with big rewards along the way and at the end. Because I run my own business, I’ve had the chance to work with bright, creative, capable people. I’ve gotten to travel all over the country, try new things, and write books. Is your business giving you the opportunities you want? Are you realizing your dreams? However much you are enjoying your work and succeeding, Project Management for Small Business Made Easy can help you do it more. As I wrote this book, one idea kept coming up over and over again, like a music theme in a movie: eliminate hassle. Learning and applying project management tools will help you eliminate hassles like these:  You do a job, then find out it wasn’t what the customer wanted.  You give a job to a team member, but he or she forgets or misunderstands, and the work doesn’t get done.  Certain jobs are a pain in the anatomy, but you don’t see how they can be fixed, so you just live with them over and over.
