Oh, as a developer, I don't like this rationale either. Unluckily, I experienced it quite often so far. It doesn't mean by any chance a management's failure, though. Probably I wasn't looking quite convincing, 'cause find the argumentation still partly reasonable.

The scenarios you suggesting might work quite well. Especially if you're starting working on a stale codebase and sure about the upcoming area of activity. But still, why wouldn't you just keep those things in mind to dev team and serve it to the management under a sauce of a higher estimation due to poor code quality? From my naive point of view I would rather buy that, if I were a manager.

Thank you! I'm glad you like the article.
