Process drives better feature flag management

Feature experimentation platforms make feature flagging easier to do and easier to manage, but even the greatest tools don’t contain all the DNA an organization needs to succeed.

Requirements define the things we want our applications to do, but before they are requirements, Microsoft’s agile “guru” Sam Guckenheimer said, they start as a belief. “Everything is a hypothesis,” he said. “The hypothesis has to be turned into an experiment, substantiated or diminished with data.
