Jain, a principal quality manager at Microsoft, overviews the Team Software Process (TSP) and offers real-world details about his experiences successfully implementing TSP and Six Sigma at Microsoft. The first seven chapters look at current challenges in the software industry, outline principles of software project management, and give an overview of TSP and the Personal Software Process (PSP). The bulk of the book offers detailed outlines of nine meetings for the TSP launch process, with notes on meeting duration and agenda, topics to cover, and checklists for meeting wrap-up. There is also advice on managing and coaching teams. A final chapter overviews Six Sigma and shows how to blend it with the software development processes. The book is intended for professionals who are involved with software development and software process improvement, including developers, testers, project managers, TSP coaches, and quality assurance engineers.
