Описание: В мире всего несколько книг, оказавших столь значительное влияние на менеджеров в ИТ-индустрии, как Человеческий фактор. Главная идеея книги заключается в том, что основные проблемы разработки ПО имеют социологическую, а не техническую природу. Эти проблемы сложны, но решив их, вы значительно увеличите шансы на успех.

Что нового в третьем издании?

В третьем издании появилось шесть новых глав и внесены многочисленные правки в основной текст, так что теперь книга лучше соответствует современным средам разработки и современным проблемам. В частности, книга теперь освещает патологии лидерства, которые раньше за патологии не считались; эволюционирующую культуру собраний; гибридные команды, состоящие из людей разных и, казалось бы, несовместимых поколений; а еще растущее понимание того, что некоторые наши инструменты служат скорее якорями, а не двигателями. Каждый, кому необходимо управлять проектом по разработке программного обеспечения или целой организацией такого рода, найдет на страницах этой книги множество ценных советов.

Few books in computing have had as profound an influence on software management as Peopleware . The unique insight of this longtime best seller is that the major issues of software development are human, not technical. They’re not easy issues; but solve them, and you’ll maximize your chances of success.

For this third edition, the authors have added six new chapters and updated the text throughout, bringing it in line with today’s development environments and challenges. For example, the book now discusses pathologies of leadership that hadn’t previously been judged to be pathological; an evolving culture of meetings; hybrid teams made up of people from seemingly incompatible generations; and a growing awareness that some of our most common tools are more like anchors than propellers. Anyone who needs to manage a software project or software organization will find invaluable advice throughout the book.
