Mathias Verraes on Technical Debt:
The problem isn’t technical debt, it’s unmanaged technical debt. In any company, the CFO knows exactly how much financial debt there is. There are spreadsheets, quarterly reports, payment plans, and options to refinance or sell debt. But ask your CTO how much technical debt your organisation has, and you’ll get an awkward “uh… a lot?” as an answer.
The Wall of Technical Debt is a surface in your office where you visualize these issues on sticky notes.
Make it visible.
