Good Morning

This is the first Better ROI from Software Development newsletter. Which for Alan, who's been subscribed since December 2019, may come as a surprise (sorry Alan).

Episode 48: Its not just about building the right thing - its also about building the thing right

In this week's podcast, I look at why building the thing right is just as important, if not more so, than building the right thing.

My previous writings

If you've come to me via my podcast, you may not be aware of my writing on the same subject. contains over 30 articles on achieving Better ROI from Software Development.

Future thoughts

Thank you and stay safe Mark
