Though Japan has successfully competed with US computer makers in manufacturing and marketing hardware, it has been less successful in developing software that competes with US software companies. This book analyses how a number of Japanese firms, in an effort to catch up, have created what are called `software factories' in which large numbers of people are engaged in developing software in co-operative ways.

Recensioner i media

`The book should be read by anyone who wants to understand the changing global marketplace in software.'
John B. Munson, Space Systems Division, Unisys Corporation

Michael Cusumano's book provides crucial insight to major Japanese contributions in software development methodologies and management practices. As such, it is required reading for software managers around the world.'
Robert L. Martin, Software Technology & Systems, Bellcore, Bell Communication Research

`While most observers of Japanese software development tend to eat the sushi and run, Michael Cusumano has dug into the reality of the software process in the U.S. and Japan. His book, Japan's Software Factories, is first rate and very important.'
James H. Morris, School of Computer Science, Carnegie-Mellon University

`Michael Cusumano's book on software engineering is outstanding. I believe, with Thucydides, that momentous times need to be recorded, and I believe that these are such times. I am glad that he has done it.'
James H. Frame, James Frame Enterprises, Inc.

`A careful, thoroughly researched and cogently argued study. It is likely to remain the last word on the subject for the foreseeable future.'
Bob Johnstone, Far Eastern Economic Review

`Cusumano has written a fine, detailed historical account of how the Japanese manage software development.'

`An ambitious and impressive piece of work. It should prove valuable to at least three groups: those interested in the software industry, in Japanese business, and in the relationship between technology and organizational forms.'
Sloan Management Review
