I am looking for a good book(s) that include following topics
(1)Complete SDLC Steps with in-depth discussion
(2)What reports will be generated at each stage of SDLC (with sample reports)
(3)How to do effort estimation
(4)How to add various kind of buffers

Please suggest me.

Two good books I can suggest on management (generic, not necessarily covering what you want) -

(1) Mythical Man Month, old classic
(2) Everyone needs a mentor

So Chetan, you're a manager now?? Wow!!

  • Any project can be estimated accurately (once it's completed).
  • The same work under the same conditions will be estimated differently by ten different estimators or by one estimator at ten different times.
  • To estimate a project, work out how long it would take one person to do it then multiply that by the number of people on the project.
