Author Humphrey, a senior fellow at the Software Engineering Institute, provides wisdom and experience on software project management, rather than specific instructions, in this guide for software engineers, project managers, and other software professionals. Coverage encompasses defining goals, period and product plans, common problems of teams, and creating a sense of urgency with short-term goals. A section on dealing with bosses offers insight on negotiating projects and defending plans, dealing with aristocratic bosses, and building a case for process improvement. A final section on dealing with yourself gives guidance on taking control of your work, using support staff, and managing commitments. An appendix offers a primer on the personal software process (PSP), the team software process (TSP), and CMMI.
