Addison-Wesley Professional



In 1986, Watts S. Humphrey made an outrageous commitment: a promise to transform  software development. As the pioneering innovator behind SEI's Capability  Maturity Model (CMM), Personal Software Process (PSP), and Team Software  Process (TSP), Humphrey has more than met that promise. But his contributions go beyond methodology: For decades, his deeply personal writings on project management have been admired by software engineers worldwide.

Reflections on Management brings  together Humphrey's best and most influential essays and articles—sharing insights that will be indispensable for anyone who must achieve superior results in software or any other endeavor.

Collected  here for the first time, these works offer compelling insights into everything  from planning day-to-day work to improving quality, encouraging teamwork to  becoming a truly great leader.

All of these writings share a powerful vision,  grounded by a life in software that has extended across nearly six decades. The  vision is this: To succeed, professionals must effectively manage far more than  plans, schedules, and code—they must manage teams, bosses, and above all,  themselves.
