Incrementalism and automation may be "lead bullets", but "high quality code" is more the target you are shooting at.

I'd disagree here and replace that with "fufilling business needs" - the highest quality code is meaningless if it doesn't do what your customer wants in the way they want it done.

Good craftsmanship is usually correlated with a good end product, but craftsmanship for its own sake is a hobby, not a career.

Indeed. The best code is no code.
