Abstract:

The process to successfully engineer quality software suffers from challenges identified over 40 years ago. Upon deeper review, a majority of the factors related to software development failure are human factors. Including a Project Coach PC who is focused on humanistic issues in the software engineering process will have a positive impact in addressing software engineering challenges. A PC focuses on Knowledge Management KM, cyclical assessment, informal learning, and dynamics coaching to ensure team harmony and growth, sound project management practices, and most importantly - quality, on time software.
