A systematic approach to consistently successful software development. In the age of the Internet, where software is more mission-critical than ever, it's no longer enough for your development projects to succeed some of the time. You need to deliver excellence, consistently—and you must do it faster than ever. Successful Software Development proceeds from the fact that there is no one way to develop software systems and introduces a model for a mature software development process that accommodates flexibility, the Systems Engineering Environment (SEE). This model comprises two fundamental, interlocked elements: the policies and procedures that define how software development is performed and the technologies available to get the job done. Using the SEE framework, learn how to: Understand and "sell" the business case for software improvement Establish and nourish an ongoing, productive dialogue between developers and customers Manage the multiple constituencies, personalities, issues, and egos that complicate software development Create plans that reflect the need for change–and take into account real-world risks Write clearer, more useful contracts and statements of work Successful Software Development includes over 200 figures, process diagrams, and annotated outlines–all designed to help you understand and implement better processes quickly and with less resistance. This book's techniques will work with any software quality methodology you choose, as well as SEI's capability maturity models and ISO 9000. They will work with any development technology, from CASE to object-oriented design to rapid prototyping. And they will work for you whether you're a programmer, manager, or customer. When it comes to delivering better software, if you need to get results, you need this book.

"This book will help you not become a "Pointy Hair Manager." It will give you enough insight into the nature of software, the development process, and the techniques and tools used, so that you can intelligently reason about development and adjust, plan, replan, manage risks, and lead a team to success; not just document and record their failure." --From the Foreword by Philippe Kruchten, Rational Fellow, Rational Software Canada Together, a high demand for productive software development teams and a company's call for superior software have made seasoned professionals invaluable assets to software organizations.

The new software management classic: in-the-trenches wisdom from legendary project leader Joe Marasco Over the course of a distinguished career, Joe Marasco earned a reputation as the go-to software project manager: the one to call when you were facing a brutally tough, make-or-break project. Marasco reflected on his experiences in a remarkable series of "Franklin's Kite" essays for The Rational Edge, Rational and IBM's online software development magazine. Now, Marasco collects and updates those essays, bringing his unique insights (and humor) to everything from modeling to scheduling, team dynamics to compensation. The result: a new classic that deserves a place alongside Frederick Brooks' The Mythical Man-Month in the library of every developer and software manager. If you want to ship products you're proud of... ship on time and on budget... deliver real customer value... you simply must read The Software Development Edge.
