Product description

Synopsis

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.

About the Author

George Stepanek is a senior software developer and team leader for Unisys New Zealand. He earned a master's degree from the University of Cambridge and certification as an architect in J2EE and Microsoft's .NET.
