comment Introducing “20% time” at a workplace
@Job: the question is closed unfortunately, but I want to clarify that you're absolutely right (and I did not mean to suggest otherwise) that the 20% time is not for sitting around and doing nothing. It is for work - the useful, background work, of which paying down technical debt is a great example; the work that is can be preempted by the customer-pulled work subject to higher-priority service-level agreements.

@AlexFeinman (and comment-upvoters): the two-word answer is Real Options. I've updated the question to clarify.

comment What electronic user-story-mapping tools can you recommend?
my goal when I asked this question was to identify multiple options for story-mapping. Since it's already given that whiteboard and stickies are an option, the question focuses on options for replicating Jeff Patton's story-mapping technique with electronic tools. Then of course I want to maintain these options and defer commitment to any of these options until the last responsible moment.

@JeffO: The answer shouldn't depend on that, but if you need this assumption, assume a distributed team and the need for an electronic tool. The starting point for the question is applying Patton's technique with stickies on a whiteboard. Then the question itself is, what electronic tools are the best (or adequate) at replicating this technique?
