Software Management Lessons from the 1960s

Ash Grove B

“The Mythical Man-month” is one of the seminal books in the field of software project management. It was written in 1975, based on experience from the 1960s, yet many of the lessons-learned Brooks’ presents are still relevant today. Some are directly applicable while others are valid with a little interpretation. This session will present a modern overview of the ideas presented by Brooks and a look at what we can still learn from them even today.
