Software is pervasive in today's technical systems in industry and everyday life. Modern enterprises strategically invest into software and often have their own software development departments. Software engineering is the exciting discipline that addresses the challenges of today's software projects: cost and time pressure and software quality. This book aims at uncovering the implicit assumptions of today's leading software engineering paradigms. It presents knowledge shared by seasoned experts in the field which is usually gained by experience in software engineering projects or communication between software engineers only. This way, the book wants to empower the ambitious software developer to become the project's systems thinker and systems strategist by telling the story of successful software engineering projects.
