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...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very readable - more important: very good points made, 28. Februar 1999
In this book a lot of problems of big software development projects are discussed. DeMarco discusses causes as well as solutions in a way that makes things very understandably. For the people that have been there and who had their advises dismissed I can say from own experience: it gives the reassurance that you were not as mad as your manager made your environment believe you were when you tried to cut the staff on that project with that very ambitious deadline. The readability and the summoning up at the end of every chapter make this book even more valuable. A "must-read" for project managers, their bosses and who ever is interested in running projects.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SW Project Mngmnt Myth Breaker which leaves you open-mouthed, 4. September 1998
This fascinating book breaks a lot of myths, and more important, points out bad habits and beleifs the software managers had for decades (and still have). One can wonder if all the ways of doing things described in this book actually work in the real life. But think that the author (that has many years in this field) has collected the most important issues which affect the SW development process, as learned from painful experiences of thousands of developers in many years. If you are a SW manager and have a stubborn & old-fashioned boss, give him this book. No one likes to be Allair Belok.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Refreshing !, 27. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Tom DeMarco's choice of a novel format to describe the "black art" of project management was absolutely delightful. I didn't think anyone could write about that subject with such charm and wit. Everyone in the software industry should take note. Each time there was a twist in the plot, I thought of how one of my past projects took a similar turn.
His project management tips listed throughout the book were wonderful. My only gripe is that they weren't listed together in one place (like an epilogue.) If only more managers, particularly those in larger businesses, would run software projects by these principles.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent presentation of Project Management methodologies., 21. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The Deadline by Tom DeMarco gave me good software project management techniques, methodologies and human resource issues in a real world environment. This book created a good setting using colorful characters that show the trials and tribulations that go into a software project. Enjoyable reading would recommend to anyone, not just software project managers. Most topics can be used on any type of project.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good S/W Project Mgmt Book - very easy to read, 17. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The Deadline is a very enjoyable and easy reading book. I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in S/W Project Management. DeMarco gives you a keen insight into the joys, pitfalls and underpinnings of S/W Project Management, without bogging you down with a lot of VERY technical details. Highly recommend it!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intrigue and romance - just another large software project., 17. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Intrigue and romance - just another large software project. If the project management principles illustrated in Demarco's farfetched story worked with that absurd schedule and odd project team, maybe they can work with the impossible schedules and team characters we all must deal with in real life software project management.

5.0 von 5 Sternen DeMarco's charming wit makes it work, 22. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The messages in this book aren't too hard to swallow, nor are they too soft such that you can pass up reading this book. It is true that many of the techniques presented by DeMarco here are not new, but some of them are not well known, and some are even considered (gasp!) sacrilege by today's managers. Its 101-management principles alone make this book worth the purchase. This book presents management in the light it should be seen in: a people-oriented activity, versus a thought-oriented activity. Too many of the newest software management books forget this simple truth. This book is a resounding reality check: apply the new ideas, but never forget to lead with your heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen wonderful story, useful principles, great laughs, 28. November 1997
My local bookstore had it on the fiction shelves, rather then in the computer section, making it hard to find, but they were right, this is a story, even though it had principles for PMs in every chapter. The believablity factor is negative 2, but it's a great read, and a good slam at various industry personalities.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Slip "The Deadline" into your manager's briefcase., 23. November 1997
Von 
David W. Smith (Silicon Valley) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Using a fictional project as an instructional device, DeMarco discourses on the human side of project management, introduces some new (or lesser known) techniques,
and sneaks in
some swipes at industry sacred cows.
Problems appear, are discussed, and then disappear, just like real life... Several well-known consultants make
thinly disguised guest appearances to lend advice on problems in their area of expertise.

This is a entertaining "big picture" read for project leaders, but seems aimed more at managers who manage managers--folks at the Director or V.P. level. Each chapter ends with a set of management friendly, presentation-ready "lessons learned" bullet points. Read it, then
slip it into your manager's briefcase before their next long flight.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable overview of managing software development., 17. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Tom Demarco does an excellent job as he gives his opinions on familiar (and some not-so-familiar) techniques for managing large-scale software development projects. Don't expect to get down to the low-level details of particular approaches, but do expect to see a humorous and thoughtful discussion of many common practices. Process improvement and the CMM take some funny hits, indeed. This is a very quick read that will often make you stop and think. The format of the book, a fictional story, does wonders for letting the reader gain a new perspective on material they have probably seen before and stopped really thinking about. Read this book.
