Myth Releases Are Final

The initial release of an application is only the first of many, perhaps over decades. Mission-critical applications are frequently revised monthly, if not more often, throughout their entire lives. The idea that everything the system will ever do must be in the first release is patently untrue.

This belief drives schedule slip: that one must hold up or delay the system because it does not do one thing or another, or because it has bugs. The truth is that it will never do everything and it will always be imperfect. The real question is whether it can provide value to the business today and, especially, in the future.

Thus, a software release is not an event; it is a process. It is not a wall; it is a step.
