rather than by programmers for programmers, but
is a good read nonetheless. De Marco and Lister
are definitely suits, but have clearly seen a lot
of software projects succeed and fail. The best
bit of the book is their statement that, while
they can't make up a list of things that guarantee
success, it's easy to make a list of things that
will guarantee failure (and it's a rare project
that doesn't score at least 50% against that
list). It's small enough to be read in a single
cross-country flight, and they write well enough
to make that reading enjoyable.
A very easy read for both techies and non-techies alike. Programmers and
engineers will be nodding their heads in agreement.
One of the few books that deals with work-space and the impact it has on productivity (statistics are included).
It also deals with the management of skills within the software development group, with approaches to handling the varied skills found in the team.
Give it to your boss, your CEO, your CIO, and your technical staff.
I've got the second edition which is splitted in six parts. The first one, it's a general and enjoyable review of what the hell managing people is and why it's so hard. After that, we're explained how our noisy office environment sometimes makes our productivity plummet. Don't worry! Low-cost solutions are also included. Next two chapters are both about people: how to hire the best and how to bring them up within productive jelled teams. Watch out, you must keep teamicide away from teams. It also talks us about CMM and what it calls "The Big M's", explaining its influence over creativity.Last but not least, this second edition adds several chapters dedicated to topics like chaos control, organization learning, process improvement...all of them from the corporation-level perspective.
All that stuff just to conclude that people is the most valuable resource in any organization. This book doesn't taste like one of those stale books about business emotional intelligence ...it just shows plain concepts and applicable daily ideas. What turns this outstanding book into a classic is that its principles can be applied to almost any project or business (related to IT or not). My piece of advice would be "if you manage people, read this as soon as possible".
So...bosses, Peopleware is waiting for you!
