Don’t Do Irrelevant Busywork in the Name of Agility


Engineering bandwidth that is not fully occupied at all times is not a bad thing. Teams should take the time to pay off tech debt, have the ability to learn, improving the delivery process, write documentation, minimize waste and optimize for joy. Unfortunately this is often perceived as wasteful as it’s of very little value to the business. Teams will then put in irrelevant busywork in the name of agility. Don’t be that team.
