the past few days? )

Humbird, Len - CFC (asked for hepl on IS/IT process docs)f

Steven J. Owens (that's me) suggested the SEI's website or Steve
McConnel's books.

Brooks is actually high on my usual recommended reading list for
requests about the actual software development process, but the post
was about doc layout for software processes, so I kept it succint.
Brooks is one of my favorite authors on the topic, if only because
of some really nice quotes about the importance of documentation.

Probably includes his "no silver bullets" essay from a few years
