The first real-world, case study-driven guide to making better decisions throughout any software project - Introduces an innovative decision-making model that bridges the gap between theory and practice, and is fully grounded in actual examples - By experts with 50+ years' experi...ence making software projects run better - Builds on the authors' highly influential Carnegie Mellon course - Will be the definitive software decision-making resource for both industry and academia Summary Effective decision-making is crucial to the success of any software project. Now, using a real-world, case study approach, this book systematically shows how to make better decisions -- and avoid the bad decisions that lead to project failure. Drawing on their leading-edge research at Carnegie Mellon and elsewhere, this book introduces an innovative decision-making model effectively bridges the gap between software engineering theory and practice, providing direction that is both well-grounded and actionable. Professionals can quickly learn by example, and immediately act on what they've learned. One step at a time, readers will learn how to manage decision-making related to technical staff, stakeholder expectations, requirements, planning, estimates, risk, process, product, and more. Like The Mythical Man-Month, all of this book's examples are drawn from real-world experience in software development and, like that classic, this book introduces ideas with remarkable resonance and applicability in virtually any project or environment. This book will be widely used in practitioner training seminars, formal education environments, and by any software engineering organization that wants to achieve more consistent project success.
