This book is composed of papers previously written by Watts Humphrey. The people and management aspects of software development are often neglected in books and this one is a good source to start thinking about them… and improving our practice. The book is structured in four parts: managing your projects, managing your teams, managing your boss and managing yourself. In each part, it presents both general principles and real life examples or stories taken from Watts Humphrey career. This makes the book very easy to read as we can connect the theory to situations that we have met in our professional life.
