Best practices from the world's highest-quality software development organizations.
Contrary to popular wisdom, you can build extraordinarily high-quality software-and this book shows you exactly how the world's best development organizations do it. From Cisco to Intel, Texas Instruments to Tandem, Dare To Be Excellent gives you an exclusive tour of today's software quality best practices. Each chapter describes a real-world problem, and exactly how it was identified, addressed and fixed-in detail. Dare To Be Excellent covers virtually the entire software lifecycle, including:
- Project planning, management and support
- Software requirements
- Software reliability and automated testing
- Release planning and metrics
- Software inspections
- Managing key client/vendor relationships
- Software Development Process Handbook
By now, software engineering practices don't need to be defined; they need to be applied. Dare To Be Excellent shows how real organizations have gotten past obstacles that trip up so many companies. Even better, it shows how to fit best practices to your situation, instead of the other way around. Whether you're a developer, manager, tester or executive, you'll find proven ideas you can actually use to build higher-quality software starting right now.
