Description: This book describes and documents the PSP (Personal Software Process) forindividual software developers, and introduces them to the TSP (TeamSoftware Process) for teams. With examples and data drawn from real-worlddevelopment projects, it shows how developers can better manage anddramatically improve their personal software process. In doing so,organizations become better able to deliver defect-free software on time andunder budget.In short, this book is the industrial version of the author's Incredibly influential"A Discipline for Software Engineering." It build upon and modernizes thattext (as well as Humphrey's previous PSP and TSP books) to present acontemporary and completely updated approach toward the highly importanttopic of software process improvement.
