Best supporting argument for refactoring
Has anyone got any tips for persuading management that refactoring code is a good idea ? I was asked something like
"After this refactoring, will I have a better product ? How does time spent on this benefit the company?"
Or something along those lines. I can see why management asked it but my response was not fantastic. I said something about how a well designed piece of software will mean that adding new features in the future will be quicker and easier.
Does anyone else have any tips ?
