A systematic approach to consistently successful software development
It's no longer enough for software development projects to succeed some of the time; you need to deliver excellence, consistently
Cultivating Successful Software Development: A Practitioner's View presents the first systematic approach to making sure that all the software systems you develop meet the highest standards
It introduces the first coherent model for a mature software development process, the Systems Engineering Environment (SEE)
This model comprises two fundamental, interlocked elements: the policies and procedures that define how software development is performed, and the technologies available to get the job done
Using the SEE framework, you'll walk through every step of the software development process-from planning, through coding, through maintenance
You'll learn how to measure where you are—and where you should be
Then you'll learn how to go beyond quantification, discovering proven ways to make the cultural changes your organization needs to improve software quality
Discover how you can: Establish and nourish an ongoing, productive dialogue between developers and customers
Manage the multiple constituencies, personalities issues and egos that complicate software development
Create plans that reflect the need for change—and take into account real-world risks
Write clearer, more useful contracts and statements of work
Cultivating Successful Software Development includes more than 200 figures, process diagrams and annotated outlines—all designed to help you understand and implement better processes quickly, and with less resistance to perceived (real or imagined) losses
This book's techniques will work with any software quality methodology you choose, as well as SEI's capability maturity models and ISO 9000
They will work with any development technology, from CASE to object-oriented design to rapid prototyping
And they will work for you whether you're a programmer, manager, or customer
When it comes to delivering better software, if you need to get results, you need Cultivating Successful Software Development
