Case* Method Reviews


"It was a pleasure to write the Foreword for such a well-written, informative book (Case Method: Entity Relationship Modelling ), I learned some new guidelines for entity relationship modelling when I read it over." - Dr Carma McClure, Vice President of Research, Extended Intelligence Inc. "Richard Barker has managed to encapsulate in book form (Case Method: Entity Relationship Modelling ) his many years of data modelling theory and practice. His new book comfortably achieves the seemingly impossible task of being both introductory and definitive at one and the same time." - Russell Jones, Editor, Software Development Monitor

There seemed to be a realistic emphasis on investing a short time up front in the Strategy stage - the lack of which often becomes the Achilles' heel for many projects. I liked the Deliverables orientation and the emphasis on quality control; and the people-sided commentary." -Ed Acly, Independent Analyst with International Data Corporation "...this book (Case Method: Tasks and Deliverables ) will be of great value when putting together a work plan; in particular, the checklist format is excellent in giving me something to work against. Such checklists... consistently enforce methodology across a wide group of people." -Rik Williams, Cogent Systems, Denver
