Q: How can you fix an unhealthy Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)?
A: To create a cure, you must first identify the symptoms, and then treat the infection. To do this, I recommend that you do a complete health check at least once a year on both the tools and the process. This can be as straightforward as running diagnostic tools, viewing the support tickets over the last year, and having your administrator send out a survey to the users. If this doesn’t cover all of your bases, you can also review the original goals of the tools and processes and what they were designed and implemented to address. Evaluate if it has contributed to the overall productivity of the teams. I also encourage you to review the cost-effectiveness and return on investment on a regular cadence.
