Technical Debt; why it really matters

Matt ThornhillTechnical debt, that’s for the developers to worry about, right? Wrong.

We hear more and more how its important to be ‘agile’, to move quickly and deliver real value to our customers regularly. Without an understanding of and plan for its impact, technical debt will significantly effect the teams ability to react to changes in the market and capitalise on them.
