After reading this article, there are a few things that I would hope to propose for my current project. My current project is quite an old web application that is developed with little interest to patterns or best practices. Refactoring the entire project to current practices would take years to complete. Therefore, the sugggested method is to do minor and preventive refactoring whenever we have the chance to do it. It will not be wise to request for more time and resources on a LIVE project(from a business point of view). Taking a little time and effort on the developers' side to do preventive maintenance/refactoring will also enhance their lives as future change request/bug fixes will also be much more simpler.
An interesting article on project management, how to control the scope of a project, plan properly, control changes and deliver on time. Being involved on projects which had nearly failed due to improper planning, I seriously feel that scope and change control are really essential to the health of a project.
