To date, several methods are available for estimating the technical debt present in an application's source code. The SQALE (software quality assessment based on life-cycle expectations) method provides guidance for managing this debt. This article provides some implementation recommendations the authors learned from coaching and assisting large organizations in setting up and using SQALE.
