Death march : the complete software developer's guide to surviving mission impossible projects by Edward Yourdon( Book )
38 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The guide to surviving "doomed" projects. At an alarming rate, companies continue to create death-march projects, repeatedly! What's worse is the number of rational, intelligent people who sign up for projects whose schedules, estimations, budgets, and resources are so constrained or skewed that participants can hardly survive, much less succeed. Yourdon sheds light on the reasons why companies spawn Death Marches and provides you with guidance to identify and survive death march projects. He covers the entire project lifecycle, systematically addressing every key issue participants face: politics, people, process, project management, and tools. No matter what your role--developer, project leader, line-of-business manager, or CxO--you'll find realistic, usable solutions.--From publisher description
Decline & fall of the American programmer by Edward Yourdon( Book )
23 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a refreshing change from the "Silver Bullet" books now on the market. Too often a solution to a single facet of the software delivery process problem is seized upon and touted as the complete answer to analyst/programmer productivity. I agree with Ed that a unified field theory is not yet available (probably never will be) but this work helps define the problem domain boundaries as no book in recent memory."--John Johns, AT & T, Georgia

CIOs at work by Edward Yourdon( )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In CIOs at Work, noted authorEd Yourdon interviews many of the world's most influential chief information officers. You will gain insights from the first CIO of the USA, take a peek into the future with the CIO at Google, learn the unique role IT plays in testing Microsoft applications, and much more. Yourdon focuses on how his interviewees tackle the day-to-day work of managing information in their organizations while revealing much more: How they got there, how they manage and allocate resources, and how they interact with business units and assure that their companies take advantage of technologies and automation to make employees even more productive. Surveying a variety of unique corporations, you'll get a great sense of what can be done and what is being done now in organizations around the world. "Simply put, Ed Yourdon's CIOs at Work is a fascinating read. The author has managed to illuminate the real challenges confronting the Chief Information Officer. The technical expertise of his extraordinary interviewees and their personal insights into the changing role of technology in business are in no short supply. But, what really stands out beyond the banter about "clouds, " "agile development, "is the human dimension. More than anything else, the CIO is wrestling with profound issues: the proliferation of choices, the speed of change, the shorter attention spans of consumers, the "everyone's an expert" mindset, and the growing expectation for limitless and low cost computing resources that are as open and accessible as they are safe, secure and accurate. At last, the CIO has a human face, but also an enormous burden that can only be appreciated by reading Yourdon's probative interviews."
