When an organization takes on technical debt unknowingly we call it Dark Debt. While we’ve gotten good at identifying and managing technical debt, Dark Debt of the cultural variety is harder to see.
Is your IT organization’s culture impacted by:
- Invisible and unplanned work
- Late work or low quality work
- Unclear priorities and wasted effort
