The diversity of examples and their associated lessons learn, give the reader the ability to compare their specific situations independent of the domain that someone is working in. Don Reifer has found an excellent way to share with the systems engineering and software engineering communities how to address transferring lessons learned in one domain to adjacent markets/domains. He effectively uses organization structure, project structure, processes,products and people to help the reader compare their own situation to the case studies in this book. I found the references and identified web resources within each chapter to be extremely valuable. Issues from technology change, process modeling, commercial applications development and government system development are covered.

Format: Paperback
Donald Reifer is a well-known author on a variety of software management topics. His latest book is on Software Change Management, and it can be highly recommended.

Many books on change and process improvement are theoretical and abstract. Donald's book, on the other hand, contains a useful variety of actual case studies and actual data. This is a refreshing change from the abstract ideas that tend to permeate the software literature.

Some of the forms of change discussed in the book include adopting Agile, achieving process improvement, adopting commercial packages in place of custom development, moving to the cloud, adopting new technology, and improving maintenance. There are others too but these stand out.

The book can be recommended to project managers, academics, CIO's and CTO's, and all others who need to introduce change into corporate or government environments.
