Format: Broché
Ce livre est dense. Très. 370 larges pages, bien remplies de texte, avec quelques schémas ici et là. Heureusement, l'auteur prend son travail très au sérieux, mais ne se prend pas trop au sérieux lui-même, ce qui fait que son livre est émaillé de phrases humoristiques agréables qui allègent quelque peu l'ensemble.

Sur le fond, j'ai un peu de mal à juger car, en tant que dirigeant d'une TPE, je n'ai jamais géré des projets d'une complexité, tant humaine que technique, du niveau de celle qu'aborde l'auteur. Ce livre s'adresse d'ailleurs clairement davantage à des personnes travaillant dans de grandes organisations, tout comme Results without authority, et encore plus spécifiquement aux personnes travaillant dans le domaine du développement logiciel, bien que l'auteur fasse visiblement de son mieux pour être le plus général possible ' mais les références à l'industrie du logiciel sont trop nombreuses pour qu'il atteigne véritablement son objectif.

Je dirai toutefois qu'il est évident à la lecture de ce livre que Scott Berkun est quelqu'un possédant une grande expérience de son sujet qu'il maîtrise excellemment bien. Je sais que si je dois gérer un jour des projets de développement plus complexes que ceux de mon entreprise actuellement, je n'hésiterai pas à plonger dans ce livre pour y puiser des astuces et idées ou trouver des réponses à des problématiques précises. Ce livre a donc toute sa place sur la bibliothèque de tout manager de projet dans une grande organisation.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, not great. 11 décembre 2013
Par Sachmo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a solid book on project management. It covers a lot of fundamentals such as effective communication, decision-making, planning, and problem solving.

It's good and full of a lot of useful information, but not great. Berkun worked at Microsoft and was a project manager on Internet Explorer 1.0 - 5.0.

A caveat - Internet Explorer is not my favorite product (even pre-Mozilla). But it is a complex product that requires extensive analysis, design, development and testing - and Berkun clearly knows the product development process well.

The book does not offer any overall paradigm or methodology for project management. Rather it has short sections on subjects such as 'requirements' where Berkun will share whatever gems of knowledge he amassed in his years at Microsoft. Though I'm normally partial to books where the author presents an overall technique, I do find his anecdotes / advice to be useful. It provides a general context to making good decisions in product development.

The only place where I'd really fault the book is that it leans very heavily to a waterfall process, and some of the advice is definitely more useable in a large organization than in a small one. If the book had less waterfall assumptions, I'd probably be willing to give it 5 stars.

Despite this, Berkun's insights are still quite useful to someone even in a small startup environment, or pursuing product development in an agile framework.

The book can be a bit boring in some sections, but is always informative and offers good advice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent and Gentle PM Guide 16 mai 2016
Par Dave in Denver - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book when it first came out as "The Art of Project Management", and I like it more now. This is a great book to help PMs understand the nuances of their job. It's fun to read, first off. Each topic and subtopic has a clearly stated set of issues to consider, and the end of chapter summaries and questions get you thinking more. I also enjoyed the stories and examples that Berkun uses to explain things. They helped me connect the book with my life managing marketing projects and understanding the perspective of our technical teams. I find myself going back to the book often when I'm trying to think about how to handle project situations - good thing to have in your corner.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Seattle's Best 17 décembre 2012
Par Michael Tozer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The title of this review of "Making Things Happen" is chosen with set purpose in mind. Seattle's Best is a fine coffee brand offered daily at my place of work. It is tasty, even, in a way, excellent. So is the book, in a manner of speaking. But let the reader beware. The flavor that comes across is that of the Seattle area, home of Microsoft Corporation. The author is a Microsoft veteran. And it seems that all of his work experience, reflected in this otherwise important and well written book, is deeply colored by his Microsoft project activities.

Kindly keep in mind that the above is not necessarily meant to be any sort of condemnation of the book. There are, in fact, many interesting ideas conveyed therein. But to represent this book as Mastering Project Management, as its subtitle imples, is really quite a stretch. One could probably make a good case that Mastering Project Management requires acquiring a working knowledge of the Project Management Body of Knowledge. And Amazon also makes available a very good and handy Guide to this Body of Knowledge. However, I would argue that Phillip Metzger's classic, "Managing a Programming Project", could more rightly be judged as accomplishing the goal of Mastering Project Management in a single volume. Now, readers of that wonderful book could point out that Metzger's book has a decidely Armonk, which is to say, IBM, flavor. However, Metzger's book really does provide a much better general overview to the topic of project management. Scott Berkun's book is not bad. It is simply not, as another reviewer has averred, deserving of the lavish encomiums heaped upon it by the majority of other, previous reviewers. If you want to learn how things were done successfully at Microsoft, by all means, pick up this book. But if you are looking for a more general representation of the serious business of project managment, I'd stick with Phil Metzger's. God bless.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Review Ever... 17 janvier 2014
Par Terry MacDonald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There is a lot of praise out there for Scott Berkun and this book in particular. I feel a bit silly adding to the list of reviews, but I decided to go forward anyway when I tasked myself with writing the best review ever. I think a lot of us are looking to figure out what is the best in a fast fashion. Word of mouth is always king, so Amazon reviews come as close as they can. So, why read Making Things Happen?

- Note that it is the new edition of The Art of Project Management.
- You will gain personal motivation to make things happen either at work or in life.
- The book covers how to be a great project manager, from gathering ideas to managing teams and schedules.
- It may not be all new news, but it's all the best management practices in one well-designed book.
- He introduces several key concepts and brings perspective to areas that may seem like common sense, but as the wise saying goes: "We need not be so much instructed but reminded."
- This book is more than just an overview, but you do need to continue to learn. For more in-depth looks into project management, one can read up on the Agile Manifesto, Lean Kanban principles; SEI's CRM for risk management; and The Practice of Creativity: A Manual for Dynamic Group Problem-Solving
- Scott Berkun's style of writing is really wonderful. His voice is both practical and vivid, engaging and clear. His level of expertise in communicating what it means to be a great project manager has transcended from author to teacher, which means you know he's good!

I hope you find this review helpful. Now, go make things happen!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny, intelligent, and helpful 20 mars 2012
Par GTRyanA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had a friend refer this book to me, and I'm glad that I took the time to read through it. It's a book that is best digested on a chapter by chapter basis, rather than a cover-to-cover read. It doesn't explore ground-breaking concepts. It touches on project management topics, but it doesn't dwell on any single topic for too long. He says several times that there are more detailed books for any given topic, and references many of them. It's a book about how to approach a project, get it done correctly, and how to work with other people through its different phases. I interpreted the primary foci of the book to be completing projects by collaborating effectively with other people and adjusting management methods to fit the project, rather than trying to fit the project into a particular management method.

The book is written in a funny and informal way that allows it to be read and re-read without feeling like you're opening a textbook. I enjoyed how there weren't straight up procedures for exactly how a project manager should go about doing his/her job. There were rough guides, diagrams, anecdotes, and some suggestions for things that a manager could do, but it seemed obvious to me that these were meant to be interpreted and adjusted to fit both the situation and your own style.

I purchased this book on the Kindle. Now that I've read it, I'm considering purchasing an actual copy so I have one to flip through for reference in the future. I plan on referring this book to my coworkers as well. It has helped me define several things that I can work on to improve my success in my current job and any future jobs.
