Software management, 7th ed.

Ed. by Donald J. Reifer.

Wiley-IEEE Press


548 pages




The new edition of this popular tutorial focuses on what practitioners need to know to be successful, acknowledging that this takes studying what appear to be disparate fields. Consultant Reifer and contributors create both a classroom text and a reference with dozens of articles covering the basic principles of software management, including the reasons why big projects fail and critical success factors, life cycle models, process improvement (including quantification and culture clash), project management, planning (including requirements engineering and tracking), software estimating, organizing, staffing (including training developers in critical skills), the human side of management and motivation, visibility and control, software risk and recovery management, metrics and measurement, acquisition management issues, and emerging management topics such as distributed development, security, information resources management and managing at light speed.
