Description - Effective Software Project Management by Robert K. Wysocki
Why another book on software project management?
For some time, the fields of project management, computer science,
and software development have been growing rapidly and
concurrently. Effective support for the enterprise demands the
merging of these efforts into a coordinated discipline, one that
incorporates best practices from both systems development and
project management life cycles. Robert K. Wysocki creates that
discipline in this book--a ready reference for professionals and
consultants as well as a textbook for students of computer
information systems and project management.
