Developing software projects nowadays is not much of an errand. With several tools springing up, it is easy to develop software projects and if we go down with a sneak-peek into the overall project scenario, what ultimately matters is the management. Management serves as upright in whatever we do, and for software projects, it is none the less. Software projects can be developed and tested with several software and automated tools in hand, but efficient and successful management is needed, satisfying customers, stakeholders and those involved in the development and other tasks incorporated in developing software projects. This paper of ours aims to bring out newer trends, solutions, and practices in the field of management involved in software projects so as to cope up with the ever increasing diversification of projects, customer needs, demands, and preferences. © 2019, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
