DESCRIPTION Technical debt is best understood as the work remaining
before a job can be considered complete. It is one of the worst
bottlenecks when it comes to creating value with software and the
ability to deal with it is often the difference between a great
business and closing the shop. The Mikado Method is a process which
systematically eliminates technical debt. It gets its name from a
simple game known as "pick-up sticks." Starting with a jumbled pile
of sticks, the goal is to remove the Mikado, or Emperor, stick
without disturbing the others. Players carefully remove sticks one
at a time, leaving the rest of the heap intact, slowly exposing the
Mikado. The game is a great metaphor for eliminating technical
debt-carefully extracting each intertwined dependency until
successfully resolving the central issue. The Mikado Method
describes a pragmatic and straightforward method to plan and
perform non-trivial technical improvements on an existing software
system. Step by step, readers will identify the scope and nature of
technical debt, map the key dependencies, and determine the safest
way to approach the "Mikado"-the goal. A natural byproduct of this
process is the Mikado Graph, a minimalistic, relevant, just-in-time
roadmap and information radiator that reflects deep understanding
of how the system works. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Written by the
creators of the Mikado Method Step-by-step guide with hands on
examples Points out sources of technical debts AUDIENCE This book
is for software developers with a basic understanding of Java or
familiarity with a C-like language. No previous experience with the
Mikado Method is necessary. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY The Mikado Method
offers a way to improve software systems without breaking them or
going through long periods of having a half functioning system.
