4.0 von 5 Sternen A fun read, with plenty to learn...
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...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good mgmt info, cussing, and personal opinions
If you want good management info, just read the summary statements at the end of each chapter. This is a project management book in which Mr. DeMarco takes the opportunity to throw in cussing and his own personal opinions on child-rearing and religion. So if you want to get his liberal opinions and read the other filth, go ahead and read the whole thing. I'm asking for...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
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 Lightning of Improvement" by William Byham.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Super zu lesendes Englisches Original zu "Der Termin", 14. August 2002

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
Dies ist das englische Original zu der deutschen Ausgabe von "Der Termin".
Die Kommentare zu diesem Buch kann man sich bei der deutschen Version durchlesen. Meiner Meinnung nach, haben die Leute die Intention des Autors nicht verstanden, wenn sie sich darüber aufregen, dass es sich nicht um hohe Literatur handelt. Die Idee war ein Buch über Software Projektmanagement zu schreiben, dass auch unterhaltsam und recht leicht zu lesen ist.
Ich habe dieses Buch bereits 4 mal gelesen und werde es sicherlich bald wieder lesen.
Es werden tolle Ideen und Konzepte des Software Projektmanagement beschrieben. Besonders beeindruckt hat mich die These, dass man häufig ein Software Projekt mit zu vielen Leuten beginnt, man deshalb die Arbeit sofort beginnt aufzuteilen, dieser Schritt einen wichtigen Teil des Softwaredesigns ausmacht, der aber nicht designt wurde.
Ich empfehle das Englische Original. Es ist sehr gut geschrieben und leicht zu lesen. Mit diesem Buch kann man mehrere Sachen gleichzeitig lernen: Englisch und Projektmanagement.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An easy read, with great info., 1. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
This runs in the vein of "The Goal" and other business novels: a thin story placed over solid theory. It reads better than some others, although I found the romance aspect a bit much...

5.0 von 5 Sternen An entertaining, educational experience, 31. Dezember 1999
Von 
Charles Ashbacher (Marion, Iowa United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
Like economics, the discipline of software development suffers from a weakness that prevents the resolution of competing theories, in that it is generally impossible to perform controlled experiments. It would take an extremely brave manager to ever try out two competing development theories by having two teams build the same product simultaneously. However, it is possible to borrow a technique from theoretical physics and perform thought experiments. Such an experiment would involve having more than one team develop the same product simultaneously, but using different techniques. That type of experiment is the premise of this novel.
The main character is a recent victim of downsizing who is kidnapped and taken to a formerly communist country where the educational level is high and the costs are low. Once there, he succumbs to his fantasies and agrees to perform the experiment of his dreams. With six products to build and a large staff of developers, he splits them into eighteen groups where each product is being built by three teams simultaneously. Each group of the three then uses a different development method. Throw in impossible deadlines and you have a microcosm of software development.
It would appear that such a premise would guarantee a boring book, but nothing could be further from the truth. The book is entertaining and enduring, as developers will recognize most of their development problems, albeit couched in somewhat unique circumstances. Many of the leading figures in the theory of software development management make cameo appearances, including a certain very rich man. The end result is a true stroke of genius that has somewhat of a surprise ending, but actually quite natural, given the current climate in the computer business.
It is rare when a book about the management of software development is not as dull as baked dirt, and this book is indeed the exception. Not only is it entertaining, but you can even learn some management skills in the process.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Deadline - A necessity., 28. März 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Entertaining, and Educational, 2. Mai 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
"The Deadline: A Novel about Project Management", is a delightful book especially when compared to the dry, heavy feel of a text. I think that DeMarco uses a technique that more teachers and professors should use, as opposed to a straight lecture style.
He lightly touches on most of the key aspects of project management. The story makes it easy to read without stopping to say, "Hey, I deal with this all day at work, why would I want to read about it."
Another interesting and useful feature of the book, is the journal kept by the main character. DeMarco cleverly sums up each chapter, and hence each lesson, by having the main character write entries in a journal. These lessons are generally found at the end of each chapter making them easy to find and reread at one's leisure, or as needed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a MUST read for anyone who manages people and projects., 15. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
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???

5.0 von 5 Sternen A terrific follow up to Peopleware, 5. Februar 1998
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
Tom DeMarco has written a terrific follow up to his earlier Peopleware book. He uses the vehicle of a fictional software project to present a number of ideas for improving project management. I loved the book, and read it in two evenings. People who read widely in this area will probably enjoy the veiled references to a number of other "gurus" in the field of software project management.
My only suggestion for improving this book would be an appendix listing any real world experiments that support the suggestions in the book.
Overall, I thought this was a great book, and definitely worth adding to your project management library (particularly if you liked Peopleware).

5.0 von 5 Sternen An outstanding resource for software project managers., 30. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management (Taschenbuch)
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!).
