If your desire is to effect change or have more influence on a software team, you could either stumble around in the dark for a few years, experimenting with different techniques, or you could buy, read, and apply the techniques in this book.

This choice, of course, is up to you.-Matthew Heusser Jim Brosseaus understanding of the true dynamics of the IT workplace shows through in Software Teamwork. For those on the IT solution delivery front lines, and for those who manage them, his insights and wisdom will lead to not only better projects, but a better work life as well.-Bruce A.

Stewart, Chief Executive Officer, Accendor Research, Inc. Optimizing the Human Side of Software Development: Real Solutions Based on Real Data and Experience Software Teamwork is a compelling, innovative, intensely practical guide to improving the human dynamics that are crucial to building great software. Drawing on years of work with a wide range of teams, Jim Brosseau shows how to drive powerful improvements through small, focused changes that deliver results.

These changes are designed to work for the whole team and respect existing organizational culture. Better yet, Brosseau identifies solutions you can start implementing right now, as an individual, without waiting for executive buy-in. Whatever your methodology, technology, or organization, Software Teamwork demonstrates how to apply solutions to realistic development challenges involving complex sets of stakeholders.

Along the way, Brosseau shares important new insights into the attitudes, motives, and personal relationships that project management software just cant track. Software Teamwork is a revelation-and an invaluable working resource for every project team member, leader, and stakeholder.
