After many years in professional software development, we experienced the impact of Business’ decisions on IT, the importance of IT quality for the Business, and the role of design principles and technical practices to achieve technical excellence.

In an unexpected turn of events, we learned our assumptions were flawed: the business impact on IT was bigger than expected and the ultimate test for IT quality and technical excellence was much more than software craftsmanship.

After overcoming the embarrassment for our initial blunter,  we can now share with you 4 failures and 4 success stories about the impact of IT quality and technical excellence on the Business, the ultimate test for an IT quality that matters, and the learning from our experiences in Connextra, Scuderia Ferrari F1 racing team, and in ThoughtWorks.
