By that point many brittle unit tests had been written and eventually deleted. There had been so much wasted time and effort just because one group mandated 100% code coverage and then never followed up to see how this process was working in practice. Thoughts Putting quality standards in place is important, and in this case the intentions were good. Following are a few things that could have saved this project a lot of time and money: One of the lessons learned from this project was to make a good case to management early on when you see red flags.

The purpose of the book is not to point out mistakes by management or others. Rather, it is told from the standpoint of people who had to deal with decisions made by managers and how better planning and understanding could have gone a long way. It is definitely an opinionated view, and I do not claim here to have all the answers. By sharing these stories and perspectives, ideally, some development teams may be spared the headaches and frustration that I’ve seen. Here’s a note about the format. Each chapter outlines a specific challenge and then provides some real-life stories that illustrate these challenges.

At one point, when tests started to fail often and it became clear that we needed dedicated developers to maintain the tests, management chose to stop running the automated tests. This led to many automated tests becoming outdated very quickly. It also led to an increase in introduced defects, which in turn led to low confidence in the software we were delivering. This ultimately led to more and more manual testing. It also engendered a feeling among teams that they had wasted so much time on tests that were now rotting on the vine.
