The Agile Executive

Making Agile Work

A Quip That Says It All

Readers of the post Can You Afford the Software You are Developing? might recall my grave concern about accruing technical debt. It is like debt on your credit card – you struggle to pay the interest; you rarely manage to pay back the principal.

Reading Esther Derby‘s article  The Three Pillars of  Executive Support for Agile Adoption,  I noticed her independent “verdict” on the subject:

Technical debt is the harvest of cutting corners to meet unrealistic deadlines

I am inclined to think “technical debt” is actually a euphemism for “inadequate investment”
