Watts Humphrey, a Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute, has an enormously rich experience in software project management to share. Among his many accomplishments in 27 years at IBM, he pioneered management of IBM's software development. That story alone is worth the listen. In part one of this two-part interview, Watts talks about quality as it relates to software development, his experience at IBM, and the art of managing, or empowering, that most independent of creatures -- the developer. His newest book is, Reflections on Management: How to Manage Your Software Projects, Your Teams, Your Boss, and Yourself.
