Whether it is more effective to adopt well-known
but still misunderstood Agile Technical Practices
or to keep doing what we did in the past again
and again despite the poor outcomes?
Is it worth investing time, money and effort to
learn practices and principles of Software Design?
Honestly, I think so! I will try to explain why with examples from my past experience. And I will tell you what are, in my opinion, the most relevant topics development teams need to comprehend to improve dramatically their chances to succeed.
