Learning from Bad Practice
This page is designed to show how we can learn from bad practice.
Here you will find examples of poor design that have been discovered in practice.
The purpose of this section is to discover mistakes made previously in practice, and how they can be rectified and improved upon.
We are pleased to be able to add our first three examples.
You are invited to take a look at them and feedback any comments via the forum link below.
