Our engineering organization believes in addressing technical debt. In addition to working with product owners to prioritize and fix defects as necessary, we reserve one sprint a quarter to work on things that are bugging us, whether that’s cleaning up noisy alerts, automating manual processes, or just revisiting code if we think there’s a better way to do it, using the tools we have available to set goals prior to making changes, and measuring our success.
