The new software management classic: in-the-trenches wisdom from legendary project leader Joe Marasco

Over the course of a distinguished career, Joe Marasco earned a reputation as the go-to software project manager: the one to call when you were facing a brutally tough, make-or-break project. Marasco reflected on his experiences in a remarkable series of "Franklin's Kite" essays for The Rational Edge, Rational and IBM's online software development magazine. Now, Marasco collects and updates those essays, bringing his unique insights (and humor) to everything from modeling to scheduling, team dynamics to compensation. The result: a new classic that deserves a place alongside Frederick Brooks' The Mythical Man-Month in the library of every developer and software manager. If you want to ship products you're proud of... ship on time and on budget... deliver real customer value... you simply must read The Software Development Edge.

Highlights include

  • How software projects resemble other projectsand how they're different

  • The iterative problem-solving clock: ending the day with real solutions

  • The realities of scheduling: How late are you going to be?

  • Trade-offs, estimating, project rhythm, and getting products out the door

  • Understanding what you're seeing, hearing, and feeling as a software manager

  • The human element: politics, negotiation, compensation, culture, and growth

  • Avoiding crises before they happen... and mitigating them when they do

  • Thinking laterally: original ideas in software project management
