Abstract:

This book is a refreshing change from the "Silver Bullet" books now on the market. Too often a solution to a single facet of the software delivery process problem is seized upon and touted as the complete answer to analyst/programmer productivity. I agree with Ed that a unified field theory is not yet available (probably never will be) but this work helps define the problem domain boundaries as no book in recent memory."--John Johns, AT & T, Georgia.
