Beyond Clean Code: Building the Right Software

It is done: all developers have committed themselves to clean code and craftsmanship principles, they have signed the Agile Manifesto, and carry colored wristbands. The software quality is improving (whatever that exactly means), pull requests are no longer the reason for fundamental discussions, and thanks to pair programming, knowledge is spread more evenly.
