Resolving the challenges of the future requires a thorough reconsideration of how water is managed in the agricultural sector, and how it can be repositioned in the broader context of overall water resources management and water security. Moreover, irrigation and drainage schemes, whether large or small, represent prominent spatially dispersed public works in the rural spaces. Thereby, they represent a logical vehicle for mobilizing employment opportunities into communities.




Technical Debt Management in the Context of Agi...



Technical Debt is the collection of design or implementation constructs that are expedient in the short term but set up a technical context that can make future changes more costly or impossible. In other words, Technical Debt is the deferment of good software design for the sake of expediency. It presents an actual or contingent liability that impacts internal system qualities, primarily maintainability and evolvability. It can slow the delivery of future releases or sprint increments, make defects harder to find and fix, and erode good testing practices.


Why is this important? To balance both current and future velocity, it is important to be able to track the amount of work of each type that is moving through the system. Too much focus on new business features will leave little capacity for architecture/infrastructure work that addresses various forms of technical debt and enables future value. Alternatively, too much investment in technical debt could leave insufficient capacity for delivering new and current value to the customers. Target capacity allocations for each work type can then be determined to help balance these concerns. Returning to the portfolio example, tracking the distribution of funding across investment horizons provides a means to ensure a balanced portfolio that ensures both near- and long-term health.


Focusing on delivering new functionality may result in increased technical debt. The team must allow themselves time for defect remediation and refactoring. Technical debt hinders planning abilities by increasing the amount of unscheduled work as production defects distract the team from further progress.[98]


UX debt is similar to its technical counterpart, known as technical (or tech) debt. Originally devised by Ward Cunningham in 1992, tech debt refers to the additional time and effort costs that result from launching faster or easier technical solutions, instead of releasing the best approach. It implies that the cost of having to go back and fix problems after launch is always higher than launching ideal solutions in the first place (i.e., the debt is repaid with usurious interest). Like tech debt, UX debt is often incurred when designers and researchers are working under tight timelines or impractical project constraints. Other factors that contribute to UX debt include:


In addition to user feedback, set up recurring time with the entire product team, including developers, to review the overall health of the site or app. Open up the discussion for the rest of the team to bring forward any UX- or tech-debt items that may negatively impact the user experience. Product management can also bring up debt-related issues found by leadership or other stakeholders. If possible, share trends or patterns from analytics during the discussion so the team can decide together if further investigation is needed to identify debt.


We track our UX-debt items using an epic in our backlog. During backlog grooming, we review the list of technical and UX-debt items, then we collectively prioritize and decide what to tackle in the next two weeks. We do this before we plan for any new features and functionality so we can balance cleanup with new features."


A Leveraged Buy-Out, generally referred to as LBO, is a financial transaction in which a company is taken over by combining equity and debt. In the context of an LBO, a company can be acquired by means of borrowing an often high amount of liquid assets (bonds or loans) to cover the acquisition cost. The buyout is therefore financed by debt.


In the case of an LMBO (Leveraged Management Buyout), the company's current management team buys out the company. An LMBO generally takes place when a production unit is no longer a priority for an industrial group for example. Instead of offering the business to external investors, management offers to sell it to its employees (managers and/or employees) to secure its future. The employees may be joined in the deal by external investors and set up the holding company together. This transaction is financed by debt, with the aim of making sufficient profit to repay the loan and the interest.


In this specific context, the LBU is a bet on the future: the company raises even more debt to acquire companies in the same sector in order to consolidate its strategic positions. The investor takes a risk by engaging in this kind of deal as there is no guarantee that the value of shares will rise.


Via this mechanism, the holding company is not under too much pressure in terms of cash flow management to repay the debt. However, unfortunately, dividend payments may not be quite as high as expected. If this is the case, then the senior debt will serve as security via the company's assets. And the lender will acquire those assets if the company is unable to repay the debt. 041b061a72
