Comment On What Could Possibly Be Worse Than Failure?

Earlier this week, I changed the name of the site to Worse Than Failure. A lot of readers weren’t too happy with the new name and many of you wondered why, of all names, did I choose Worse Than Failure. After all, what could possibly be worse than failure? In lieu of telling a specific story of failure today, I’d like to share my insights as to why there are – and will continue to be – so many spectacular WTFs (as in, for old time’s sake, What-The-F*s) in our industry, and why so many of them are, in fact, worse than failure.

I came up with a credo that I believe should be adopted by a certain development team not too far from where I sit. I'm not in development these days but often have to deal with their mess.

The credo is simple: "Solutions, not outcomes."

If we all followed that, the world would be a better place.

Having spent 23 years in the software industry, I have seen every single stakeholder in a software project make the same sort of mistakes that contribute to project failure - when everyone is just ready to be done with the project already and get on with life. Whether it is the sponsor who does not want to shell out the necessary funds, the business user who is not willing or able to spend the right amount of effort documenting their requirements, the project manager who did not know how to estimate the project reasonably and to manage the project proactively, the business analyst who is unable to bring out - elicit - the right - AND - complete requirements, the typically non-existent architect/ designer or the poor programmer and/ or the tester who bear the brunt of the blame for poor quality of the end product - there are plenty of people to share the responsibility.

I have wondered why we are all collectively so willing to live with poor quality software that does not work... And I suspect that for a vast majority of the people, that is so, because the cost of that software not working is 'acceptable'! We are all so comfortable with hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del to get rid of the problem - whether it is the PC itself or so many other applications, appliances, devices... And when that doesn't work, there are purely manual alternatives! And the cost of doing it that way is simply not understood or quantified. Even on a Boeing 747, the only way to ensure that the plane keeps flying is to have 4 or 6 (I forget exactly how many) levels of redudancy in its systems and software!

Also, I don't think this problem is solely in the domain of software. I bought an office chair - a 'task chair' as they are called - from Fry's Electronics (yes, I know you will ask WTF was I doing buying a chair from there! But anyway, I did!) I paid $100 for it - which I thought was good enough amount of money for an office chair of which I could expect quality. On the first day I used it, one of the screws that holds the seat to the frame fell off. And the way it is designed, it cannot simply be screwed back in. You can imagine how s****** I felt..

As I think you have rightly said - this will go on. Product life-spans have become shorter, quality has become lower, 'new, enhanced' versions come out faster than ever, enticing users to go out and buy! The landfills are getting bigger. And we are all guilty of it.

However, every now and then, someone does come along and truly surprise us and delight us. Whether it is the iPod/ iPhones, the Facebook or Twitter, the Toyota Prius or the Snuggies - they change the paradigm and hopefully inspire us all to do better and to keep trying to shine.. That's what makes the world go on!

failure is not a terrible thing, since there is life, we can stand up and keep on walking, just like me, the global economic crisis didn't beat me down, I can still bring hardwood flooring to americans to raise my family and get life better.
