Présentation de l'éditeur

From prolific and influential consultant and author Tom DeMarco comes a project management novel that vividly illustrates the principles — and outright absurdities — that affect the productivity of a software development team.
With his trademark wit set free in the novel format, DeMarco centers the plot around the development of six software projects. Mr. Tompkins, a manager downsized from a giant telecommunications company, divides the huge staff of developers at his disposal into eighteen teams -- three for each of the software products to be built. The teams are of different sizes and use different methods, and they compete against one another and against an impossible deadline.
Managing these teams — with the help of numerous consultants who come to his aid — Mr. Tompkins tests the project management principles he has gathered over a lifetime. Each chapter closes with journal entries that make up the core of the eye-opening approach to management illustrated in this engaging novel.

HASH(0x8f66d888) étoiles sur 5 A fun read, with plenty to learn... 10 janvier 2000
Par John Rotenstein - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you normally fall asleep while reading books about Project Management, give this one a try. Set in the form of a novel, the reader follows the experiences of a Project Manager charged with bringing home a series of project with typically impossible deadlines.
This is not a text book. If you're new to Project Management, I recommend that you start elsewhere. However, if you've been involved in projects or find yourself in the lucky position of being a Project Manager, this book provides some valuable ideas about how to improve your project -- or at least cope with inevitabilities.
If you enjoy this book, also look at "The Goal" by Eliyahu Goldratt and Jeff Cox, and also "Zapp: The Lightening of Improvement" by William Byham.

HASH(0x8f66d8dc) étoiles sur 5 Deadline - More of a Fairy Tale, and No Longer Novel 31 octobre 2011
Par Brant Serxner - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Our department just went through a downsizing and restacking (corporate speak for physical cubicle shuffling) and I found The Deadline among the old pens and Splenda packets in an empty cube. I remember that it made quite a stir when it came out, so I took it back to my cloth lined slice of heaven, now removed from any actual chance of any physical view of heaven, and read it.
I enjoyed skimming through this book and tend to agree with most of the points the author makes. However, as a veteran Project Manager, I think the book will be misleading to a novice and most of it better be old hat to one with any real experience. The target audience should be managers of Project Managers and their managers, and customers of Project Management efforts. But they won't like it, as it either ignores them, or disparages them. This is a real weakness. The core knowledge imparted, for professionals in PM, is better addressed in books like The Mythical Man Month and The Psychology of Computer Programming, among others.
The author embeds his instruction in a modern Fairy Tale that is breezy and entertaining, and superficial. The plot structure is really just a tongue in cheek device, bordering on facetious, to set up some straw men the author uses to get his points across, which is OK. The underlying message is a dismissal and distrust of the received wisdom of methodologies and systems of Project Management and the management of organizations, in favor of a loosely described team based approach supported by rigorous design. Not a bad perspective to work from, and fresher when the book came out, but never as all encompassing a panacea as the author makes it. The book does not use any data or analysis, cites no research, and springs its points on the reader without context or history or references to other writers. Counter examples, or other perspectives, are "out of scope", except as contrivances to support the author's views. Within this framework, the author derives a number of assertions; he calls them lessons, and uses his plot structure to give them the weight of natural laws.
The author is, in my experience, correct in his lessons. The book will make any experienced PM feel good, or maybe self righteous, and may make crusaders out of novices. Again though, while it has some valuable points, it is so limited in perspective and lacking in grounded context, that it may actually be misleading as a guide to action. Read it if you have time, keep its lessons in mind, but move on to more rigorous works.

HASH(0x8f66dd14) étoiles sur 5 An outstanding resource for software project managers. 30 avril 1999

Mr. Demarco's book is an easy, entertaining read. It can be consumed in an evening with very little effort. In the guise of the protagonist's diary entries, Demarco instructs the reader on the finer points of software project management. Humor and a cutting wit are two more of Demarco's strong points. There is more practical information in this little book than in any 10 textbooks on the subject. It is now a part of my library (if I can ever get it back - people keep borrowing it!).

HASH(0x8f6710e4) étoiles sur 5 The Deadline - A necessity. 28 mars 1998
Par - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I can not thank you enough for writing this book. The content of the book was not only completetly relevant but so insightful into a topic (sw project management) that is grossly ignored by many people who are in charge of large projects and groups of developers. My experience (7 yrs as a developer) has been that experienced programmers end up "managing" projects. The problem is that they have spent their time developing software and do not seem to know anything about managing a project. The Deadline addressed the important issues of software project management head on by presenting problems to be solved and ways of solving them not just with ideas by specific methods. Not only did I appreciate the material but the format of the book may it enjoyable to read. For a software developer who is starting to realize how much more there is to software development than wich language you know this book is a necessity.

HASH(0x8f6711e0) étoiles sur 5 a MUST read for anyone who manages people and projects. 15 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur

This was really a great reading book. Tom Demarco takes what can be a very tedious subject to read about and makes it interesting. I was so pulled into the story that I had a hard time putting it down. I would find myself sitting up at 2 and 3 in the morning still reading this book. As entertaining as it was, it was also very informative. I have been in the IT Industry 10 years and in Project Mgmt. for almost 4 years now and found the key points and "diary entries" at the end of each chapter to be an excellent guide to all who wish to be successful at managing people and projects. Whether you are new to the ranks of project mgmt. or a seasoned veteran, I think this book has plenty to teach us all. Oh, and I did love the inferences to "Himself".....wonder who he really is???
