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).
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.
I've always been an advocate for integrating IT functions into the business - but it is possibly more important that we have an effective IT.
Inspiration for this episode comes from these two sources: * http://www.bain.com/publications/articles/avoiding-the-alignment-trap-in-it.aspx * http://www.infoq.com/presentations/build-right-thing
If you've come to me via my podcast, you may not be aware of my writing on the same subject.
https://red-folder.com/projects/roi contains over 30 articles on achieving Better ROI from Software Development.
Following the 50th episode I plan to spend a number of episodes taking a deep dive into the Programmers Oath by "Uncle" Bob Martin -> https://blog.cleancoder.com/uncle-bob/2015/11/18/TheProgrammersOath.html
I believe the Oath should be a great way of exploring professionalism within Software Development.
If you have any topics for how to improve the show or grow my audience, I'm all ears.
Thank you and stay safe Mark
