Technical debt should be treated as a business value
If we only focus on delivering features we will often end up with technical debt. Technical debt over time will make us slow. It will eventually make us so slow so we need to rewrite everything from the beginning, "The big rewrite" or even worse, it can take us out of business. Technical debt need to be handled all the time. By removing technical debt, we will deliver value faster, that brings value to the business. That is the reason why removing technical debt should be treated as a business value.
