In a six-year longitudinal study conducted by The Standish Group, nearly 75 percent of the 30,000 software projects tracked failed to meet schedule, budget, or scope requirements. During the same time, when fully implemented, the techniques presented in this course typically produce at least 90% success rates. This course presents best practices in software project management both for students new to this field and for practicing project managers eager to improve results. The course materials discuss a range of corrective and preventative actions designed to help project managers deliver on time.
