9780932633439: Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams

Two of the computer industry's best-selling authors and lecturers return with a new edition of the software management book that started a revolution.

With humor and wisdom drawn from years of management and consulting experience, DeMarco and Lister demonstrate that the major issues of software development are human, not technical -- and that managers ignore them at their peril.

Now, with a new Preface and eight new chapters, the authors enlarge upon their previous ideas and add fresh insights, examples, and anecdotes.

Discover dozens of helpful tips on
- putting more quality into a product
- loosening up formal methodologies
- fighting corporate entropy
- making it acceptable to be uninterruptible

Peopleware, 2nd ed. shows you how to cultivate teams that are healthy and productive. The answers aren't easy -- just incredibly successful.

Review:

Peopleware asserts that most software development projects fail because of failures within the team running them. This strikingly clear, direct book is written for software development team leaders and managers, but it's filled with enough common-sense wisdom to appeal to anyone working in technology. Authors Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister include plenty of illustrative, often amusing anecdotes; their writing is light, conversational, and filled with equal portions of humour and wisdom, and there is a refreshing absence of "new age" terms and multi-step programmes. The advice is presented straightforwardly and ranges from simple issues of prioritisation to complex ways of engendering harmony and productivity in your team. Peopleware is a short read that delivers more than many books on the subject twice its size. --Jake Bond
