Kent Beck on Succession

Oh, God! How many times I wished for a way to give such an explanation to my teams!

The system will eventually have to deal with an arbitrary number of some element but for the moment it only has to deal with one. What to do?


The Permaculture design principle of succession suggests an alternative solution.


The cost of the succession needs to be weighed against the benefits of finishing sooner and the costs of inconsistent assumptions.

(the highlights are mine)

Thanks Kent Beck
