In her session at SHIFT 2020, Maaret leads the discussion on what one can learn from breaking something in order to get it to work better. Is your company functioning well, but not 10/10 or even 9/10? Could it be that your perception is clouding your judgment? The only way to find out is by testing your hypotheses and attempting to falsify them. Get out of your comfort zone and break a few things so you can start reworking the basis.

Developing software and business might just have more in common than meets the eye.
