Bill Curtis - Technical Debt

Dr. Bill Curtis – Senior Vice President and Chief Scientist with CAST – lays out the “Technical Debt Management Cycle”, a 7-step process for analyzing and measuring Software Debt so you can relate executive business priorities to strategic technical quality priorities for reducing business risk and IT cost. It includes a formula to benchmark your Technical Debt against industry data, or adjust the parameters to best fit your organization’s own software maintenance and structural quality objectives, experiences, and costs.
