Technical debt can cause critical issues for organizations. Every year an organization does not address these issues brings them closer to ruin. Some businesses even have to shut their doors due to irreconcilable technical debt that conventional solutions alone cannot address.
Arlo Belshee, full-stack Agile developer and technical coach, shares insightful knowledge on building better software, specifically as it pertains to what he calls safeguarding: “a simple, 22-minute practice that allows you to find, fund, and then execute real changes to your process and product.” One of the things that makes fixing technical debt so difficult is that “there is no one problem of technical debt.” Belshee advocates for empowering teams to own problems, to know what’s going on in their part of the system and to work quickly to address these problems.
