  • 12. Test Driven Development (TDD) “There is evidence that doing TDD takes about 15% longer... But there is also evidence that TDD leads to fewer defects. Two studies at Microsoft found that the number of bugs found went down by 24% and 38% with the use of TDD (Sanchez, Williams, and Maximilien 2007, 6).” --Mike Cohn, Succeeding with Agile______________________________1/4/13 win-win-win workforce with Agile http://ronlichty.com chart: Wikipedia TDD entry
  • 13. Pair Programming “Advocates of pair-programming are advocates because they believe that a pair is actually more productive than two separate developers. This is due to the continuous discussion and review that pairing introduces. You come up with better designs, make fewer mistakes, and make more people familiar with the code. All of these things offset having less people typing.” --Martin Fowler, who wrote the book Refactoring______________________________1/4/13 win-win-win workforce with Agile http://ronlichty.com Photo by Menlo Innovations, Some rights reserved, http://www.Flickr.com/photos/menlopics/3928250043/
