How About We Talk About the Rising Tide of Organizational Debt

In this episode, Chris Murman, Mike Caddell, and Andy Cleff dive into the idea of “organizational debt.” They compare it to technical debt (as well as financial debt) and discuss how it’s essential to recognize and tackle inefficiencies, outdated processes, and cultural issues in organizations.

They chat about potential signs of this debt, like slow decision-making and lack of role clarity. They stress the need for relevant metrics and creating a culture where people can freely talk about these issues. They close with a call for the agile community to explore ways to better identify, measure, and address organizational debt to enhance organizational adaptability and innovation.
