Peopleware : productive projects and teams by Tom DeMarco ( Book )
30 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few books in computing have had as profound an influence on software management as Peopleware. The unique insight of this longtime best seller is that the major issues of software development are human, not technical. They're not easy issues; but solve them, and youll maximize your chances of success. For this third edition, the authors have added six new chapters and updated the text throughout, bringing it in line with today's development environments and challenges. For example, the book now discusses pathologies of leadership that hadn't previously been judged to be pathological: an evolving culture of meetings: hybrid teams made up of people from seemingly incompatible generations; and a growing awareness that some of our most common tools are more like anchors than propellers. Anyone who needs to manage a software project or software organization will find invaluable advice throughout the book

Waltzing with bears : managing risk on software projects by Tom DeMarco ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Any software project that's worth starting will be vulnerable to risk. Since greater risks bring greater rewards, a company that runs away from risk will soon find itself lagging behind its more adventurous competition. By ignoring the threat of negative outcomes---in the name of positive thinking or a Can-Do attitude---software managers drive their organizations into the ground. In Waltzing with Bears, Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister---the best-selling authors of Peopleware---show readers how to identify and embrace worthwhile risks. Developers are then set free to push the limits. You'll find that risk management makes aggressive risk-taking possible; protects management from getting blindsided; provides minimum-cost downside protection; reveals invisible transfers of responsibility; isolates the failure of a subproject---readers are taught to identify the most common risks faced by software projects: schedule flaws; requirements inflation; turnover; specification breakdown; and under-performance. Packed with provocative insights, real-world examples, and project-saving tips, Waltzing with Bears is your guide to mitigating the risks---before they turn into problems

Measuring and managing performance in organizations by Robert D Austin ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book presents a captivating analysis of the perils of performance measurement systems. Because people often react with unanticipated sophistication when they are being measured, measurement-based management systems can become dysfunctional, interfering with achievement of intended results. Fortunately, as the author shows, measurement dysfunction follows a pattern that can be identified and avoided. The author's findings are bolstered by interviews with eight recognized experts in the use of measurement to manage software development

Dark Harbor House : a novel by Tom DeMarco ( Book )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bring together a wonderfully vaired mix of characters in a once-grand Maine island summer "cottage," leave them to their own devices over the course of a long idyllic summer in the late 1940s, and you have all the ingredients for a fine comedy of manners. Author Tom DeMarco starts with a simple love story, weaves in tantalizing details of the old mansion's not totally respectable history, and adds a hint of gentle satire to create a novel that is touching, memorable, and deliciously entertaining

Der Autor Tom DeMarco hat dreizehn Bücher geschrieben, unter ihnen Romane, Sachbücher und eine Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten. Er begann seine berufliche Laufbahn als Softwareentwickler bei den Bell Telephone Laboratories und arbeitete damals am größten Computer der Welt. Schon bald fing er an, sich dem Schreiben zu widmen. Zu seinen Betätigungsfeldern gehörten auch Organisationsgestaltung, Prozessberatung und auswärtige Angelegenheiten. Eine Zeitlang lehrte er Moralphilosophie an der Universität von Maine. Heute lebt er mit seiner Frau Sally Smyth in Camden im Bundesstaat Maine an der amerikanischen Ostküste. Der Übersetzer Andreas Brandhorst (geboren 1956 in Norddeutschland) hat mit dem Schreiben sehr früh angefangen und wenige Jahre später wurde aus dem Hobby ein Beruf, zu dem nicht nur das Schreiben eigener Texte gehörte, sondern auch das Übersetzen (u.a. der Werke von Terry Pratchett). Er ist Autor der bekannten Kantaki-Romane (zwei Trilogien), der Science-Fiction-Romane "Kinder der Ewigkeit", "Das Artefakt" (ausgezeichnet mit dem Deutschen Science-Fiction-Preis als bester deutscher SF-Roman 2013), "Der letzte Regent" und "Das Kosmotop". Außerdem gehen die Thriller "Äon", "Die Stadt" und "Seelenfänger" auf sein Konto. - "Der Weltuntergang steht bevor, aber nicht so, wie Sie denken. Dieser Krieg jagt nicht alles in die Luft, sondern schaltet alles ab." Atomraketen fliegen auf Großstädte zu - und Sie halten den Apparat in der Hand, mit dem Sie die Explosion der Atomraketen verhindern können ... Doch für diese Rettung müssen Sie einen Preis zahlen, der katastrophale Auswirkungen hat: Drücken Sie den Knopf, kommt es zwar nicht zum nuklearen Massenmord, aber Sie vernichten weltweit die Elektrizität - und somit die Lebensgrundlage der gesamten Zivilisation.
