The books I like are "Architecture-Centric Software Project Management"
by Daniel Paulish and "Beyond Software Architecture - creating and
sustaining winning solutions" by Luke Hohmann.
BTW, just wondering what SOX play in the software development?

Subject: [ajug-members] Development practices
I run a small development shop in Greensboro, NC. For years before I
came, the shop was run in a very chaotic way...no policies or
procedures...just code and fix.
I've been slowly adding processes to the mix and restructuring things,
now Sarbanes Oxley compliance is forcing me to pick up speed.
We've been researching different agile methodologies, Scrum in
but these methodolgies leave a large gap when it comes to actual
development processes (change control, documentation, etc). I'd like to
find a book that outlines best practices in software development to use
a reference and potentially a template for our approach. I'm really
more of the practical routine things, like code reviews with sign-offs,
user acceptance sign-offs, etc.
In other words, from soup to nuts, what are the steps that a mature
project should go through? What documents should be involved? What
sign-offs should be obtained? What "i"'s should you dot and "t"s should
Any pointers or reference suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
