A phrase that you might consider is "Quality is Free", which happens to be the title of a book by Philip B. Crosby targeted at managers of manufacturing operations but is worth a look by anyone in charge of a project or organization. The editorial review of this book at states Crosby's thesis nicely: "doing things right the first time adds nothing to the cost of a product or service."

You might consider that statement to be a blinding flash of the obvious, but I'm positive that many monks can give examples from their careers where their bosses decided to skip certain processes such as completing a spec before starting coding. The decision to skip a process implies that there is a cost to that process that can be avoided without penalty later on. Another snippet from the Amazon review sums up the penalty: "What costs, and costs dearly in terms of rework, test, warranty, inspection, and service after service, is doing things wrong."

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
