В этой книге Том ДеМарко и Тимоти Листер, авторы бестселлера Peopleware, рассказывают, как идентифицировать риски, управлять ими и извлекать выгоду из рисков.

"Избегать рисков - дело проигрышное. Раньше вы могли бы отнестись к проекту, свободному от рисков, как к неожиданному подарку судьбы и благодарили бы звезды за эту редкую удачу - легкий проект. Мы реагировали так же.

Отличное введение в управление рисками в разработке ПО. Пересмотрел свои взгляды на многое в оценке сроков проектов. Рекомендую.

The guys from Peopleware are at it again. This time, they tackle the management attitude that plays the ostrich and keeps its head in the sand, denying reality instead of facing it. They are making a case for knowing what risks lie ahead, how to notice them, and how to prepare for their possible occurrence.

In their usual style, the authors keep things light and simple, yet offer quick and easy rules to get you going. The book is peppered with anecdotes taken from their professional experience.

Very good book. Lots of interesting advices on risk management for software projects.
A bit outdated, since now many of the practices are part of the standard for software industry, but very good otherwise.

Ein unterhaltsam und lehrreiches Buch, das das Thema des Risikomanagements spielerisch aus der Ecke der "Fachidiotie" entfernt und in praktische jedoch professionelle Alltagspraxis für Beruf und Privatleben übersiedelt.

Das hintere Drittel des Buches ist auf das Teilgebiet der Softwareentwicklung spezialisiert, das für mich keine Verwendung hatte, aber dennoch gut geschrieben ist.

Herzliche Empfehlung an alle die Risiken in ihrem Leben und Projekten ein wenig systematischer angehen wollen - anst

Great book on project risk management - I wish more managers would read it AND use ideas expressed here in practice. The only issue, that I have, is that it relies quite heavily on upfront planning (although it stresses the importance of incremental delivery) - but I guess it is a necessity, if you want to manage risks, as opposed to "just do it and see how it goes".

Intersection of corporate culture and project management. In your company is it safe to talk about risks in a realistic way? DeMarco and Lister examine failed projects and techniques to manage risk better.

I was hopeful after Peopleware, but they lost me pretty early with "get a copy of our project management spreadsheet". Consultants and optimists!

вдарим по классике. чувствуется, что написано в эпоху глубокого вотерфолла
EINFÜHRENDES RISIKO-MANAGEMENT-BUCH interessanten Ideen, z.B. Fertigungstermine als Wahrscheinlichkeitskurve (Risikodiagramm) statt als Datum mitzuteilen.

1. Das Buch ist DeMarco-typisch runtergeschrieben, seine Leser hätten nur "Zeit für ein flott geschriebenes Buch, das sie im Flugzeug lesen können". Trotzdem sind die Inhalte nicht beliebig, im Wesentlichen läuft alles auf die 'Monte-Carlo-Risikosimulation' als numerisches Verfahren zur 'Risikoaggregation' zu (Gesamtrisiko un

Found this book lying around the office. Picked it up - quick read, clear language. The theory (first half) is more interesting than the suggested praxis (second half).

A major weakness of the book is its complete failure to address Parkinson's Law, which was proposed in 1955, is a legitimate phenomenon, and undermines large swathes of the proposals laid here. I find it hard to believe that the authors, being seasoned experts in management science, were unaware of its existence, and t

Basic risk management introduction for IT projects, that challenges the delusionary optimistic can do mantra of so many companies. It is very useful to become aware of technical risks and the importance to raise them early and manage them, along with a number of approaches to minimise those risks. Also acquiring the basic risk management vocabulary helps understand the problems from the business perspective and helps us technical people be better aligned with the company objectives (i.e. financial ...more

Shelves: manager-fu
Has some interesting observations about why nearly all software projects run late, and why most organizations do a terrible job at managing risk. It also presents a model for estimating risks and their probable impact to your project schedule - which seems like it ought to be very useful, but I haven't figured out how to put it into any sort of practice in my own projects. Part of the issue is that the model assumes that you have a pretty good method in place for estimating how long things ought ...more

Good but not as good as Peopleware, this book talks frankly about managing risk in intellectual projects with unflinching honesty, and does a lot to attack various corporate cultures where downplaying and minimizing risks takes hold, putting blinders on everyone and often leading to disaster.

A lot of this stuff is intuitive and can basically be boiled down to saying "Oh for heaven's sake, just use your brain and apply real world thought to business decisions" which sadly, often needs

Too many organisations to not understand how to identify, treat and mitigate risks. And those that do, often overcompensate. Waltzing with Bears takes readers on a journey of risk and risk management in a very entertaining and enlightening way. My only criticism of the book; in many places Tom doesn't support his statements with sufficient evidence. Any much of the evidence that is put forward in anecdotal, qualitative or statistically insignificant.

That being said, I would recommend

A quick read on managing risks you should not miss. Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister put the important aspects in a little book that is not going to bore you with much theory. If you want to go deeper in the theoretical fundaments, then you find all the references you need. If you don’t want to go down that rabbit hole, you can follow along and get a well written explanation on what you should look out for, how to gather risks and what your job is to manage them.

I've read this book in connection with work-related stuff (pushing my little project at work) - I found this book more honest on dirty-laundry of software projects than usual books on project management. But here and there it was not enough for my needs, hence if you are new to software/systems project management and looking for more information - READ this book BUT don't stop on it, look for other books too.
Bjørn Taranger
The book argues the case that software projects need to address the risks associated with the project in a structured an methodical manner. Risks are always present, and those that you ignore will occasionally hit you hard.

I find the basic premise of the book quite convincing and relevant. I also believe that some of the practical steps recommended in the book have been superseded by the agile methodologies that are dominating the field nowadays.

This was classical DeMarco and Lister - statements made more than 10 years ago, still being valid for the industry :) Highly enjoyable read and full of straight to the point statements. I would have only hoped, that chapter 19 (Value is uncertain, too), chapter 21 (Value offsets risk would have been longer.

Книга хорошо раскрывает беспорядки в управлении (и не только управлении) при создании программного обеспечения. Дает хорошее описание и резонные практические советы по управлению рисками. Начиная с основ "что вообще такое, этот ваш риск?" до эффективных способов их устранения.

Wow! This book talks so perfectly well about risk and uncertainty and exposes why we don't do it on IT projects and what are the repercussions. DeMarco and Lister really understand how and why agile works and this was in 2003. Most organisation as still way behind their thinking.

The first half of the book that contains common information about risk management is great. But the second one that teaches how risk management should be performed seems a bit outdated. If you aren't a big fan of waterfall-like processes, you'd better skip the second part.
