To address this issue, this research seeks to distinguish time-based software development practices: those managerial actions that result in faster development and higher productivity. This study is based upon a survey of software management practices in Western Europe and builds upon an earlier study we carried out in the US and Japan. We describe a set of managerial actions that separate fast and slow developers and construct a framework called Concurret Software Engineering for implementing these practices
