Description
Description: The agilists have it right in valuing individuals and interactions over processes and tools, say these authors. They cite people factors as the most critical success factors in software development and management; this article highlights the basic principles of measures and metrics as the key tools to understanding the behaviors, successes, and failures of programs and projects. A checklist is provided to help you develop a metrics program, and define and use metrics; providing useful feedback is not easy. This author shares what she has learned about providing effective feedback, and advises how to get back on track when a feedback receiver has a puzzling response; this author summarizes her experiences in transitioning from a technical person to a successful manager, including determining the work to accomplish and planning it, managing relationships with the group, and managing reactions to typical management mistakes; using the Decision Logic diagram explained in this article gives project managers a tool to effectively manage projects and report actions at project reviews with both customers and superiors; this author discusses requirements engineering maturity, whether it exists and how it is measured, and analyzes how it is addressed in the Capability Maturity Model Integration.
