Great post, Topher Bullock! I think what you touch on here is the need to balance “the work”—that is, the day to day stuff that just needs to happen as a technically-oriented business—with the need to forge ahead and not get bogged down in tech debt etc.
It’s very easy to get caught in a tailspin of work and increasing debt which results in a lack of innovation and experimentation. I’d love to see how Freedom Fridays help your team push ahead compared to where you were a few months ago.
Excited to see a follow up post!
