Managing is like holding a dove in your hand. Squeeze too hard and you kill it, not hard enough and it flies away. Tommy Lasorda
Managing software development is difficult. Managing Agile software development is impossible. That is, unless you have the tools.
As Tommy Lasorda noted, management is the fine art of holding on — but not too tight. Our experience in software development prompted us to systemize that knowledge. Through years of experience we learned there is a fine balance between development and testing activities. Begin developing tests too early and your requirements aren’t baked. Begin test development too late and you may have to start over due to requirements that were not documented or weren’t clear.
After many man years of effort, we have been able to quantify and systemize this process. The result is a functionality that provides you the management gas pedal and brakes to ensure your team stays together and identifies quality trends while they are small. Utilizing the Blue Sages Software Development Management Toolset allows you to see your program come together module by module. Further, you are able to trend productivity by staff member and team and use this information for future predictions of team performance.
