    In 1975, Fredrick Brooks wrote an amazing book, The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering [1]. The book applies to managing engineering, not just software. Brooks got his experience the hard way: he managed the development of IBM?s OS/360. At that time in history, in the mid-1960s, it was the largest software project ever attempted. In the 1990s, I worked on several versions of Micros... View full abstract»
