Description:

The knowledge of project management methods alone lasts only until the next fad develops, but the underlying fundamentals remain the same; understand them, and you have the keys to evaluating and using any new method. Organized around the basic principles of software project management, this text introduces software development methods, from traditional to iterative. Software Project Management emphasizes tailoring the development process to each project, with a foundation in the fundamentals that are true for all development methods, making it a must-read for students, software practitioners, and project managers.
