    Transition (process-centric)
    Hibernation (knowledge-centric)
    Approach
  • Software Sustainability
    Comparable to software risk management
    No one right “solution” but many examples of best practice and process
    Plan from before the start if possible
    But must be reviewed regularly
    How are you currently doing it and who should be supporting it?
  • Sustainability: thinking outside the box
  • “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day.
    Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for life.”
    Sustainable communities
    demonstrate 4 key factors:
    - cohesion and identity
    - tolerance of diversity
    - efficient use of resources
    - adaptability to change
    "Teach a man to fish, and you introduce
    another competitor into the overcrowded
    fishing industry.
    Give a man a fish, and you
    stimulate demand for your product"
