IN THIS SUMMARY

Drawing on almost two years of on-site observation, 40 in-depth interviews, and unprecedented access to confidential documents and project data, the authors focus specifically on Microsoft’s unique "synch-and-stabilize" approach to product development, demonstrating how this vital capability enables the company not only to build an increasing variety of complex features and end-products for fast-paced markets, but also to shape evolving mass markets and foster organizational learning. Microsoft Secrets is an illuminating overview of a powerful company in a powerful industry and may well serve as one of the most enlightening references on excellence in ongoing innovation for software project managers, as well as managers in many different industries-particularly those concerned with rapidly evolving complex product features and high technical standards.
