MANAGES THE COST OF CHANGE With the focus on functional software at all times that many software development processes pitch, you might be led to believe that you have quality code at all times. Frequently, the converse is true and in the rush to get something working quickly, a lot of cake was left around the oven. The problem is that there never is time allocated to officially go back and clean up the mess that was left behind in the rush to get something functional out the door. The garbage sits for a while, and everybody on the team has moved on to other features and after a couple of months there is no one who really knows why that particular code is there, but they are too scared to touch it for fear of breaking the build or destroying something critical.

The entire company gets new software on a predictable schedule. Also, they know not only “when” but also “what”: they know what is coming and they can perform their jobs based on that information. For further details on this topic, see the following sections: “Why the Six Week Solution is Different” on page 28, “Software Development Sometimes (Accidentally) Succeeds” on page 32, and “True Negotiation” on page 83. Also see Chapter 4, “Overview of the Six Week Solution” on page 37. IS BOTH TACTICAL AND STRATEGIC Short-term successes are critical, but long-term goals are also important to meet.

The Six Week Solution provides a sharper focus to the development process than even other Agile processes do for several reasons: • • • • • • Transparency: Explicitly spelling out what will be developed to the entire company increases the focus on the work being performed in development. Checkpoints exist in the method to continue the focus on communication so that there are no surprises. Everyone in the company can understand the cycle: From the office manager to customer support and sales, everyone in the company will know what is being developed and when it will be available.
