people in the software industry are thrust into positions of responsibility for
software project outcomes, but few are given formal or informal training in how
to make that happen. In this two-day course, the workshop leader describes
specific steps that small and medium-sized development teams should take to
succeed on projects from three to 12 months long. This Software Survival
Process is based both on the instructor's direct experiences on software
projects and on experience gained from Construx Software's project assessment
and project recovery consulting business.
Case studies are interspersed throughout the workshop to illustrate how
survival principles apply to a variety of real-world situations. These case
studies are drawn from headlines in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes and
Business Week, as well as drawn from Construx Software's own experience.
This seminar is based on Steve McConnell's best-selling book Software
Project Survival Guide.
