Almost all software projects are risky. The goal of every project manager is to somehow deal with the cost and schedule uncertainty while meeting your customer's needs. In Object-Oriented Project Management with UML, Murray Cantor describes an elegant, UML-based approach to managing object-oriented projects guaranteed to deliver high-quality software on time and within budget.

Drawing on his experience managing major software projects at IBM and TASC, Cantor supplies you with:
* Proven ways to reap the benefits of using UML tools to tame most project demons and deliver optimal OO systems
* Tips on integrating object-based techniques with traditional methods for project planning, risk management, scheduling, time-phased budgeting, and more
* Expert advice on how to handle all the important "people" issues that crop up during a development project
* Real-life war stories that let you see firsthand what worked and what didn't on several major development projects
* A full-length project example that walks you through every phase of a project told in terms of problems and solutions

Visit the companion Web site at www.wiley.com/compbooks/cantor to find:
* Sample project schedules, budgets, database templates for managing use cases, and a work-breakdown structure
* A spreadsheet workbook for managing incremental development
* A development tracking diagram

Prior to joining TASC, Dr. Cantor was a development manager at IBM, where he oversaw the development of high-end graphics and multimedia systems.
