Engineers Spend 33% of Their Time Dealing with Technical Debt. Engineering time, morale, and the missed revenue from software delays are more important than others. Maintenance of legacy systems and technical debt is the number one cause for productivity loss. For a 50-person engineering team, that 33% is $1.65M/year. Technical debt alone has a $3 trillion impact on global GDP. By 2023, I&O leaders who actively manage and reduce technical debt will achieve at least 50% faster service delivery times.
