I agree, but here it┤s not a matter of working or not working it┤s a matter
of working with quality or without it. Quality here being linked to testing
coverage and simple, changeable design.

Again I agree and that is what we did and are doing, but the problem we are
facing is that we don┤t seem to be able to find the right balance between
the 'what' with superior quality and the delivery date.
