By Philip Weaver
Financial Times / Pearson Education
$69.50 paper original
Final year projects are an important feature of most undergraduate and postgraduate
degrees in the fields of Business Information Technology, Information Systems,
Software Engineering and Business Computing. These projects usually involve
students in the practical application of theory together with a critical analysis
or evaluation of the execution of their project or of the theory applied. This
book is the first to provide detailed guidance and support for students in preparing
for, conducting and evaluating a system development project, independent of
the development methodology or technical tools to be used.
"A book in this area is long overdue. I will strongly support this book."
---Diane Richardson, Teacher Fellow and Head of Computer & Information Sciences,
De Montfort University.
Key Features: covers the critical tasks of selection, planning and initiation
of the project as well as the control and reporting of progress during its execution;

execution and project completion; provides detailed guidance and tips for the
completion of all key development activities, tailored with examples of system
development products taken from a wide range of types and approaches. assists
students in the evaluation, writing-up and presentation of their projects, with
emphasis on the elements that are of primary importance in achieving the academic
objectives; a website with templates and examples is available for students.
