Companies are in business to maximize the return on their investment. Unfortunately, most software professionals lack the skills to evaluate the business impacts of the technical choices they make – which can lead to waste in time, money, and personnel. Grounded in engineering economics and business decision making, this course teaches you the essential concepts and techniques that will help you make technical decisions that positively impact the all-important bottom line.
