One of the interesting trends over the last few years is the growing use of the term 'technical debt', largely driven by the agile community. As a profession we are acutely aware of the some of the elements of debt, such as defects, and we instinctively know the impact over time. From the IT perspective, it's obvious, surely?

Rather than keep this valuable knowledge to ourselves, we can create business benefit by placing the measurement and management of technical debt at the heart of what we do as a business. We can build trust and deliver more value as a profession.
