Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy
$125.98

Contract work is more important than ever for better or for worse, depending on one’s perspective. The security once implied by a full-time job with a stable employer is becoming rarer, thereby erasing one of the major distinctions between "freelance work" and a "steady gig." Why hang on to a regular job for the sake of security if security can no longer be assumed? Instead, contractors, hired temporarily for specific knowledge and skills, market their expertise as they move from project to project. Even though their employment is precarious, a great many consider freelancing preferable to holding a "regular" job: the control they feel over their time and careers is well worth the risks that come with relatively uncertain cash flow. Freelancing Expertise is a qualitative study of decision making, work practices, and occupational processes among writers and editors who work in print and Web communications and programmers and engineers who work in software and systems development. Debra Osnowitz conducted sixty-eight extended interviews with representatives of both groups and twelve interviews with managers and recruiters, observed four different work settings in which contractors work alongside employees, and monitored blogs and online discussions among contractors. As a result, she provides a unique and sensitive assessment of a cultural shift in occupations and organizations. Osnowitz calls for a reconfiguration of the employer/employee relationship that accepts more variation and flexibility: just as "freelancing" has, over time, taken on many traits considered characteristic of traditional career paths, so might regular jobs make themselves more appealing to today’s workforce by mimicking some of the positive aspects of transactions between clients and contract workers.

Guide to Software Development: Designing and Managing the Life Cycle
$78.96

The challenge of improving the quality and process of implementing enterprise software has only become more complex, and software products for enterprise resource planning (ERP) often fail to provide quicker and more cost-effective solutions. Furthermore, the decision whether to make or buy software is not a simple one. This "Guide to Software Development" addresses the problem of how best to make such decisions, and what effect such decisions have on the software development life cycle (SDLC). Offering an integrated approach that includes important management and decision practices, this text/reference explains how to create successful automated solutions that fit user and customer needs, by mixing different SDLC methodologies. Guiding readers through the theory, and applying this to the realities of practice, the book offers essential advice on defining accurate business requirements, and managing change. Topics and features: includes useful Appendices, a Glossary, suggestions for further reading, and chapter-ending problems and exercises; provides concrete examples and effective case studies; focuses on the skills and insights that distinguish successful software implementations; covers management issues as well as technical considerations, including how to deal with political and cultural realities in organizations; identifies many new alternatives for how to manage and model a system using sophisticated analysis tools and advanced management practices; emphasizes how and when professionals can best apply these tools and practices, and what benefits can be derived from their application; discusses searching for vendor solutions, and vendor contract considerations. Suitable for students of introductory project management, or analysis and design, this practical guide/reference will also be of interest to practicing IT professionals and executives involved in managing software projects, in addition to business managers responsible for ERP-type projects.

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy
$125.98

Contract work is more important than ever for better or for worse, depending on one’s perspective. The security once implied by a full-time job with a stable employer is becoming rarer, thereby erasing one of the major distinctions between "freelance work" and a "steady gig." Why hang on to a regular job for the sake of security if security can no longer be assumed? Instead, contractors, hired temporarily for specific knowledge and skills, market their expertise as they move from project to project. Even though their employment is precarious, a great many consider freelancing preferable to holding a "regular" job: the control they feel over their time and careers is well worth the risks that come with relatively uncertain cash flow. Freelancing Expertise is a qualitative study of decision making, work practices, and occupational processes among writers and editors who work in print and Web communications and programmers and engineers who work in software and systems development. Debra Osnowitz conducted sixty-eight extended interviews with representatives of both groups and twelve interviews with managers and recruiters, observed four different work settings in which contractors work alongside employees, and monitored blogs and online discussions among contractors. As a result, she provides a unique and sensitive assessment of a cultural shift in occupations and organizations. Osnowitz calls for a reconfiguration of the employer/employee relationship that accepts more variation and flexibility: just as "freelancing" has, over time, taken on many traits considered characteristic of traditional career paths, so might regular jobs make themselves more appealing to today’s workforce by mimicking some of the positive aspects of transactions between clients and contract workers.

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy
$125.98

Contract work is more important than ever for better or for worse, depending on one’s perspective. The security once implied by a full-time job with a stable employer is becoming rarer, thereby erasing one of the major distinctions between "freelance work" and a "steady gig." Why hang on to a regular job for the sake of security if security can no longer be assumed? Instead, contractors, hired temporarily for specific knowledge and skills, market their expertise as they move from project to project. Even though their employment is precarious, a great many consider freelancing preferable to holding a "regular" job: the control they feel over their time and careers is well worth the risks that come with relatively uncertain cash flow. Freelancing Expertise is a qualitative study of decision making, work practices, and occupational processes among writers and editors who work in print and Web communications and programmers and engineers who work in software and systems development. Debra Osnowitz conducted sixty-eight extended interviews with representatives of both groups and twelve interviews with managers and recruiters, observed four different work settings in which contractors work alongside employees, and monitored blogs and online discussions among contractors. As a result, she provides a unique and sensitive assessment of a cultural shift in occupations and organizations. Osnowitz calls for a reconfiguration of the employer/employee relationship that accepts more variation and flexibility: just as "freelancing" has, over time, taken on many traits considered characteristic of traditional career paths, so might regular jobs make themselves more appealing to today’s workforce by mimicking some of the positive aspects of transactions between clients and contract workers.

Guide to Software Development: Designing and Managing the Life Cycle
$78.96

The challenge of improving the quality and process of implementing enterprise software has only become more complex, and software products for enterprise resource planning (ERP) often fail to provide quicker and more cost-effective solutions. Furthermore, the decision whether to make or buy software is not a simple one. This "Guide to Software Development" addresses the problem of how best to make such decisions, and what effect such decisions have on the software development life cycle (SDLC). Offering an integrated approach that includes important management and decision practices, this text/reference explains how to create successful automated solutions that fit user and customer needs, by mixing different SDLC methodologies. Guiding readers through the theory, and applying this to the realities of practice, the book offers essential advice on defining accurate business requirements, and managing change. Topics and features: includes useful Appendices, a Glossary, suggestions for further reading, and chapter-ending problems and exercises; provides concrete examples and effective case studies; focuses on the skills and insights that distinguish successful software implementations; covers management issues as well as technical considerations, including how to deal with political and cultural realities in organizations; identifies many new alternatives for how to manage and model a system using sophisticated analysis tools and advanced management practices; emphasizes how and when professionals can best apply these tools and practices, and what benefits can be derived from their application; discusses searching for vendor solutions, and vendor contract considerations. Suitable for students of introductory project management, or analysis and design, this practical guide/reference will also be of interest to practicing IT professionals and executives involved in managing software projects, in addition to business managers responsible for ERP-type projects.

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy

Freelancing Expertise: Contract Professionals in the New Economy
$125.98

Contract work is more important than ever for better or for worse, depending on one’s perspective. The security once implied by a full-time job with a stable employer is becoming rarer, thereby erasing one of the major distinctions between "freelance work" and a "steady gig." Why hang on to a regular job for the sake of security if security can no longer be assumed? Instead, contractors, hired temporarily for specific knowledge and skills, market their expertise as they move from project to project. Even though their employment is precarious, a great many consider freelancing preferable to holding a "regular" job: the control they feel over their time and careers is well worth the risks that come with relatively uncertain cash flow. Freelancing Expertise is a qualitative study of decision making, work practices, and occupational processes among writers and editors who work in print and Web communications and programmers and engineers who work in software and systems development. Debra Osnowitz conducted sixty-eight extended interviews with representatives of both groups and twelve interviews with managers and recruiters, observed four different work settings in which contractors work alongside employees, and monitored blogs and online discussions among contractors. As a result, she provides a unique and sensitive assessment of a cultural shift in occupations and organizations. Osnowitz calls for a reconfiguration of the employer/employee relationship that accepts more variation and flexibility: just as "freelancing" has, over time, taken on many traits considered characteristic of traditional career paths, so might regular jobs make themselves more appealing to today’s workforce by mimicking some of the positive aspects of transactions between clients and contract workers.

Guide to Software Development: Designing and Managing the Life Cycle

Guide to Software Development: Designing and Managing the Life Cycle
$78.96

The challenge of improving the quality and process of implementing enterprise software has only become more complex, and software products for enterprise resource planning (ERP) often fail to provide quicker and more cost-effective solutions. Furthermore, the decision whether to make or buy software is not a simple one. This "Guide to Software Development" addresses the problem of how best to make such decisions, and what effect such decisions have on the software development life cycle (SDLC). Offering an integrated approach that includes important management and decision practices, this text/reference explains how to create successful automated solutions that fit user and customer needs, by mixing different SDLC methodologies. Guiding readers through the theory, and applying this to the realities of practice, the book offers essential advice on defining accurate business requirements, and managing change. Topics and features: includes useful Appendices, a Glossary, suggestions for further reading, and chapter-ending problems and exercises; provides concrete examples and effective case studies; focuses on the skills and insights that distinguish successful software implementations; covers management issues as well as technical considerations, including how to deal with political and cultural realities in organizations; identifies many new alternatives for how to manage and model a system using sophisticated analysis tools and advanced management practices; emphasizes how and when professionals can best apply these tools and practices, and what benefits can be derived from their application; discusses searching for vendor solutions, and vendor contract considerations. Suitable for students of introductory project management, or analysis and design, this practical guide/reference will also be of interest to practicing IT professionals and executives involved in managing software projects, in addition to business managers responsible for ERP-type projects.
