Abstract (Summary)
Extreme programming project management examines software development theory, the extreme programming process, and the essentials of standard project management as applied to software projects. The goal of this thesis is to integrate standard software project management practices, where possible, into the extreme programming process. Thus creating a management framework for extreme programming project management that gives the extreme programming managers the management activities and tools to utilize the extreme programming process within a wider range of commercial computing organizations, relationships, and development projects. The author speculates that the lack of organizational adoption and mainstream integration of the extreme programming process is connected to the lack of standard project management structure that allows for greater control of scheduling, cost, and quality. This paper will create a basic framework that will be used to improve the extreme programming process and identify its shortcomings.
