How to ensure your project will stay on schedule and within budget.
Business leaders want to be at the top of their game when it comes to software development. After all, making the wrong moves during the development process can cost time and money – and result in bug-ridden, defect-plagued applications. This is not something that corporate executives typically worry about, even though it can directly impact their companies’ bottom lines and reputations. Executives are often removed from the daily ins-and-outs of software development and execution by necessity. They envision a company’s whole trajectory, including long-term projects and goals that will lead to profitability. They simply don’t have time to be a part of daily development meetings.
