Continual improvement in agile? That may be questionable. I have found, over time, that the codebase gets worse over time. That is due to the business pressure to get the software out. Then, later, when we need to add more features, we don't have time to adapt the similar part of the old code base to what the new feature demands (even when the calculations are the same) and the new feature is in another subproject. Either, it is easier and quicker to duplicate code, or use a cross dependency to the original code (with some minor changes to accommodate the new feature), then hopefully, later we will have time to fix up the bad code decision(s). Hence, technical debt. Then when we do want to fixup the code debt, it becomes difficult to convince the product owners and QA that retesting will be necessary and time will be needed to make sure that we didn't break something along the way.

I agree that it would be better to have allotted the time when adding in the new feature for correctly setting up the needed dependencies in the lower level projects, but management doesn't want to spend a lot of time testing (even regression testing) even for a new added feature. So, having the time to do a good engineering job is severely limited.

In other words, if we are not making revenue generating features (or fixing inhibiting defects), we are not encouraged to make the changes.
