What Is Software Project Management

This book is about the practice of software, project, and management. Which term is most important, and what do the words actually mean? And how do the 34 competencies fit into them? Many authors have proposed variations over the years, and the standards organizations themselves don't always agree. We need some practical definitions that fit our circumstances.
