January/February 2010 (vol. 27 no. 1)
pp. 17-19
John Favaro, Informatica E Tecnologia Del Software Spa (INTECS)
The software project management body of knowledge is gradually being renewed across the entire lifecycle. In the conception phase, the focus is on fostering innovation through new approaches such as business analysis and crowdsourcing techniques. In the construction phase, the rise of global software development has shrunk the world and led to new approaches to risk management that take into account factors such as cultural diversity. In the project conclusion phase, new approaches to the evaluation of project success are being introduced, such as project retrospectives and intellectual capital reporting. Conversely, long accepted approaches to measurement and evaluation such as those promoted in the Chaos reports of the Standish Group are being called into question.
