Debugging The Development Process

Debugging The Development Process, Steve Maguire, ISBN: 1556156502

This is the sequel of the book 'Writing Solid Code' that I have also enjoyed reading. In this book, the author simply applies the same mindset used to debug software to analyze development process and this makes the result very interesting. Instead of just giving a methodology for managing development, the author brings readers to think about the goals behind these methodologies through real life anecdotes and colorful analogies. In my opinion, this way of teaching is much more efficient than just showing a methodology and asking to follow it without showing the motivations behind it.

Covered topics include: how to keep a team motivated, what not to do to avoid demotivating a team, how to deliver on schedule without overwork,etc...

This is a book easy to read that could take you just few hours to go through. Some people could say that it just state the obvious but unfortunately too often this is exactly what is out of sight for many so I would say that you might get new insights from it or, at worse, a refresher on good strategies by reading a nicely written and entertaining book.
