A discipline for software engineering by Watts S Humphrey( Book )

34 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humphrey and others have used material from this book to train professionals and students around the world in a projects-oriented software engineering course. First establishing the need for discipline in software engineering, and the benefits to practitioners of learning how to manage their personal software process, Humphrey then develops a model that they can use to monitor, test, and improve their work. Examples drawn from industry enhance the practical focus of the book, while project exercises give readers the opportunity to practice software process management as they learn it. Features: presents concepts and methods for a disciplined software engineering process; scales down industrial practices for planning, tracking, analysis, and defect management to fit the needs of small-scale program development; and shows how small project disciplines provide a solid base for larger projects

"Watts Humphrey is the visionary behind the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) and the Personal Software Process (PSP). The CMM contains a framework for software process improvement at the organizational level. The PSP builds the self-discipline needed for individual programmers to work efficiently and effectively. The author's new Team Software Process (TSP) details methods to guide the formation of software development teams, to motivate their work, and to enhance their productivity."--BOOK JACKET. "This book describes an introductory version of TSP, ideal for smaller projects but also useful for learning basic techniques and procedures that apply to other development projects."--Jacket

Winning with software : an executive strategy by Watts S Humphrey( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every senior executive needs to read this book."--Robert Musson Vice President, Business Strategy Cenus Technologies "An informative book for any business person (not just technologists) who has ever been associated or involved with a software development effort and thought 'there must be a better way!' Watts has provided that better way-- the PSP/TSP, and a great book." --Roy Kinkaid, Head of Continuous Improvement and Software Quality Assurance, EBS Dealing Resources Watts Humphrey is the well-known author of methods and models widely used by organizations, teams, and individuals to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of software development. In Winning with Software, he shows corporate executives and senior managers why software is both a business problem and a business opportunity. "This book is extremely well written and targets the right audience. I plan to buy a copy for each of my executives." --Kevin J. Berk, Director, Process Improvement, Total Quality Systems Humphrey, drawing on his own extensive executive and management experience, first demonstrates the critical importance of software to nearly every business, large and small. He then outlines seven steps needed to gain control of a software operation and transform it into a professional, businesslike engineering function. Failure to recognize the importance of software, and to take charge of its development process, runs the risk of damaging the entire business. By contrast, Humphrey relates the substantial benefits real organizations have obtained from such awareness and control, and he concludes with an analysis of the impressive financial returns the recommended transformations typically yield. "This is a great book that will play a valuable role. It has excellent anecdotes that illustrate the points being made, as well as good examples depicting the problems faced by teams and managers. I look forward to sharing it with my colleagues." --Steven Sliwa, President & CEO, Insitu Group Inc. and former President of Embry-Riddle University "The logical approach, the high level explanations, and the application of real-life experiences make the book not only credible but easily understood. If a large number of CEOs don't at least try out the book's concepts, I will be greatly surprised." --David Webb Software Engineering Project Manager, Hill Air Force Base

He explores all aspects of effective leadership and teamwork, including building the right team for the job, the TSP launch process, following the process to produce a quality product, project reviews, and capitalizing on both the leader's and team's capabilities. Humphrey also illuminates the differences between an ineffective leader and a superb one with the objective of helping you understand, anticipate, and correct the most common leadership failings before they undermine the team"--Résumé de l'éditeur
Characterizing the software process : a maturity framework by Watts S Humphrey( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Improvement in the performance of software development organizations is an essential national need. The improvement process has five basic elements: 1 - an understanding of the current status of the development process, 2 - a vision of the desired process, 3 - a prioritized list of required improvements actions, 4 - a plan to accomplish these actions and 5 - the resources and commitment toexecute the plan. This paper addresses the first three of these elements, by providing a model for software organizational improvement. The structure of this model provides five maturity levels, identifies the key improvements required at each level, and establishes a priority order for implementation. This model has been tested with a number of organizations and found a reasonably represent the status and needs of actual software development groups
Preliminary report on conducting SEI-assisted assessments of software engineering capability by Watts S Humphrey( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Characterizing the state of software engineering practice within an organization is a necessary prerequisite to orderly, meaningful, and sustainable improvement of the organization's ability to produce or support cost-effective, high quality software products. The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is developing a methodology for conducting SEI-assisted assessments of software engineering capability. The assessment methodology has five phases: 1) selecting the candidate organization, 2) preparing for the assessment, 3) conducting the assessment, 4) communicating final assessment findings and action recommendations, and 5) post-assessment followup activities. This report describes the methodology in detail. (Author)
