Discussion on: Our approach to dealing with technical debt

This is exactly how we are treating Tech Debt in my team.

I have managed several teams in several companies now, one common complain I often hear from developers is the burden of Tech Debt. It always goes in the lines of: we have too much debt, we are not allowed to fix it, we are expected to go full speed ahead with new work only.

In my new team I never hear such complains, why? because we empower the team to do what you just described. That's all it takes

In the end a lot of it is about trust between developers and stakeholders/managers. This visibility and process then helps create the required trust.

Glad to hear you found the same in your team!
