This book is a very good on-hand referencing material for TSP practitioners:team leads, candidate coaches and TSP team members. It has scripts (process descriptions), forms and comments for all needs

A state-of-the-art process for producing PL/I programs on punchcards. If you can master PSP/TSP, you will be more effective than 99% of all software developers at filling out forms and producing status reports. A shockingly wasteful approach to quality management.

I've been involved with many different projects in a team environment. This book contains some of the best and most respected procedures to complete a team project. I've used these methods and they work well! The principles outlined in this book apply to more than just software engineering. Take a look! You'll be glad you did!

Format: Hardcover
This is a good introduction to working in a team and using good software engineering techniques such as planning and inspections. It is geared for undergraduate students, therefore the managerial roles have been created. This would probably not work out of the box for an organization that is already set up. For students, the manager roles give each team member ownership in the product while making sure each aspect of good engineering has an advocate.
The processes are written as scripts. These are very easy to follow and take the guesswork out of how to do each step in the lifecycle.
This is a process book therefore there is not a lot of technically-oriented information in the book. For example, the book tells you that you must design your software. It does not give many guidelines on what a good (object-oriented, client-server, real time, etc.) design might look like. In addition, some of the data bookkeeping is long and involved. A good tool would help with this.
Overall, this is a good tutorial and a good reference book. I used this book as a graduate student, and I continue to pull ideas out of it for use in my work.

Perfectly Introduction to TSP March 18 2012
By Marcel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I used it to develop a Software Process based on SCRUM and TSP; being more familiar to SCRUM, what I needed was an introduction to TSP, this book was ideal for that, and had many good forms and scripts examples.

Excellent Process for Software Devleopment March 30 2005
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My software team used the TSP for developing a 3 release Java application over 12 weeks. There is a stiff learning curve, but once you learn it, you can quickly realize the results. This book takes the guesswork out of developing software. If you have a dedicated team that will take the time to learn it, you will be very happy with the results.
