Best practice refers to an approach that has been tried and tested in practice and has proven its worth. It is a model of success used for processes, procedures, techniques and configurations, which, unlike other evaluation models, guarantees success and high efficiency.
Best Practice is used wherever the approach is legally compliant and the realization of the set goals is most suitable and practical. Best Practice stands for long-term solutions with high sustainability, for innovation and positive impact. Best Practice solutions are repeatable and their success is measurable. Behind best practice is the idea that a particular process, review, or test will deliver better results with fewer problems and unforeseen complications.
Related to software engineering, best practice techniques contribute to successful software development. There are several approaches to this such as the iterative development process, management requirements, quality control, and change management.
