Our world, as product managers, is filled with making decisions, and making decisions means making trade-offs. Trade-offs so often means taking on tech debt, design debt and other types of debt, which can be a dilemma for companies, especially if it stacks up too much. This presentation explores how to address the uncomfortable topic of working debt, and how to use it to your advantage when making trade-offs.
