Software Project Management – which Methodology?

As I mentioned in my previous post, managing software projects is one of the most difficult forms of project management.

Over the next couple of months, I am going to be comparing a number of the different project management methodologies available, to help you decide which is the most suitable for managing your software projects. Unfortunately, there is not a single solution that is suitable for everyone. We all have unique requirements, and have to fit in with our tools, stakeholders, partners, and our project teams.

The methodologies that I am going be reviewing and comparing at this stage are:

  • PMBOK
  • PRINCE2
  • Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF)

If you would like to see some other frameworks in the mix, please leave a comment and I will consider reviewing it.

  5. As a project manager, I use Scrum in my projects. The Guide to Scrum Body of Knowledge by SCRUMstudy provided a complete reference for the Scrum project I am working with. It is a very good book and extremely readable. I really liked sections on risk and quality. The tools mentioned in the processes were very helpful. I highly recommend this book if you are planning to implement Scrum in your organization. You can go through the first chapter available on http://www.SCRUMstudy.com
