How big is the backpack your organisation is holding

Author: Jorge Jardines

Every experiment, invalidated product feature or unused line of code you haven't deleted is adding weight to your backpack.

Every morning when you wake up and need to walk the next X miles you feel the weight in your back and you feel slower than yesterday. It is like adding an extra bottle of water on your backpack, water you aren't gonna drink but still needs to hold on your back.

Your team or organisation is holding this huge backpacks all the time. Do you ever wonder why adding a new experiment gets more and more slower and costly for your teams, do ever check how much code isn't being used, how many features are not being used I your product, how many "brilliant" ideas were transform into code that nobody used. Do you ever wonder how big is the backpack your organisation is holding.
