Resource description

Software project are commonly late and over budget, causing the product to be late to market. This study, based on questionnaires and field research with software managers in Europe, the US and Japan, seeks to isolate the management practices that accelerate software development. The results suggest that global differences are not pronounced: Japanese software factories have development processes structured similar to their US and European counterparts; productivity also is roughly equivalent. To reduce development time, software managers currently achieve greater leverage from the management of people and the cross-functional process than with the use of CASE tools and technology
