[VLOG] What Is Technical Debt In Software Development And The Impact To The Business?

What is up awesome people? In this vlog, I am doing something different to all of my other vlogs. It is probably less popular than my other vlogs. The topic technical debt does not get talked about more often in the agile space eventhough some of the agile manifesto signatories like Ward Cunningham and Martin Fowler have concerned about it. 

Many organisations with a iron project triangle mindset only think that Scrum is only a iterative shortened waterfall. This kind of mindset often lead to technical debt in the product. In this vlog I explain what is technical debt, several reasons how technical debt happens and the impact of technical debt to the business. Hopefully you are motivated to support your software developers to be professionals and pay any technical debt in your product. Because agility is not about sticky notes and standing up everyday, agility is about the whole organisation capability to deliver quality products.
