Change Done Well is the ninth volume in the highly acclaimed Quality Software series. In it, renowned author, Gerald M. Weinberg, illustrates how to create a supportive environment for improving software engineering —an environment in which your organization can realize long-lasting gains in quality and productivity by learning how to manage change.
The history of software engineering is riddled with failed attempts to improve quality and productivity without first creating a supportive environment. Many managers spend their money on tools, methodologies, outsourcing, training, and application packages, but these managers rarely spend anything to improve the way in which these hoped-for improvements are adopted and used correctly.
From systems thinking to project management to technology transfer to the interaction of culture and process, Change Done Well analyzes transformation from a broad range of perspectives, providing a breadth of awareness essential for successful transformation to high-quality software creation.
