Managing a Corporate Transition to Object Technology

Length--1 day

Object-oriented software technology represents a new paradigm of software development that affects every element of the process.

Projects using object technology have a different set of deliverables, different life-cycle, different team structure, different cost estimation techniques, etc.

Like every other software project that is undertaken by a group or groups of persons, object- oriented projects require the management and coordination of tasks.

Much has been written about software project management. Many of these basic principles apply to object-oriented software projects. For example, Brook's observation that adding more manpower to a late project often just makes it later, also holds true for object-oriented projects.

Most of these project management principles are, however, applied differently to object-oriented projects. Any well managed project will have milestones, deliverables, and a quality assurance process, but the details of what constitutes these aspects of project management vary form one software development paradigm to another.

This seminar discusses the tasks, phases, and deliverables of the object-oriented lifecycle. Specific attention is given to the details of planning and tracking when using an iterative incremental development process.

In addition, the impact of OOT on organizations, project structure and team members is considered.
