Hi Pedro

Just like any other business decision, it's a matter of calculating the benefit-cost ratio.

A component library used to be a time-and-effort consuming project with no guarantee that it will actually be used.

Using new tools like Bit , it now takes much fewer resources to have a library with reusable UI components and the chances of it to being adopted and used by the organization are much higher (thanks to better discoverability of components, easier collaboration on individual components, etc).

So, my advice to you would be to present the benefits of a component library (written in my post) and offer the right tools for the job :)
