Fix it now or delete it!

A flow chart showing the two paths to dealing with a bug. If you "should fix it" you proceed to "will we prioritize it" if not you proceed to "delete it". If you're going to prioritize it you get to "fix it now" otherwise you proceed to "delete it"

“Fix It Now or Delete It” is a simple method that gives you two options for dealing with a bug: Fix It Now, or Delete It! I wrote a blog entry about this method a few months ago, and now there are lots of resources to help you talk to your team about simplifying the way you deal with bugs.

As part of the preparations for the lightning talk I gave last week at Agila Sverige, I created an info-graphic, cards, a mobile app (thanks to Daniel Sundman for implementing it in react-native) for iOS and Android, and a website. There’s even a t-shirt¬†or two.

I hope that these resources will help you and your team in your journey to a successful zero-bug policy!

ps Yes, I realize this was going overboard for a 10 minute talk, but I hope you enjoy it ūüôā There’s also a little picture book in the making.
