Software management efforts span a broad range of domains. The chapters in Part III discuss the major disciplines necessary for an effective management workflow: planning, organization, automation, and project control. These disciplines of software project management are not easy to define in generic terms. Therefore, another important discipline is tailoring the process framework to the specific management needs of a given project.
Planning is the crux of management. The challenge is to develop a plan that best balances the available resources to provide optimal win conditions for all stakeholders. The project organization discipline concerns itself with the management of people—organizing them into teams and allocating responsibilities for efficient operations. Automating the development process with an electronic repository for the artifacts provides a foundation for objective instrumentation. Project control activities act as the "senses" of the project. They are used to assess the health of the plan, the quality of the artifacts, and the need for changes to any of the management set artifacts that define the expectations among stakeholders.
