Technical Excellence: Why does it not stick even now? by Antti Kirjavainen
Technical Excellence: Why does it not stick even now?
Technical excellence, meaning e.g. quality code, sound architecture, good test automation and coverage, continuous integration and continuous deployment, is the pre-requisite of sustainable software development. Sustainability of software development is essential for improving the Return On Investment and extending the life cycle of software products and services.
I will argue that technical excellence is impossible to buy from a software vendor and impossible to enforce in contractual terms.
I will go over my personal experiences relating to management decisions regarding technical excellence and illustrate the thinking that is behind the ineffective decision-making related to technical excellence.
In conclusion, I will describe what kind of change of mindset is required for making effective management decisions regarding technical excellence.
