Here is a little guide to help you assess if your team is ready for a system.

One caveat to the above: if you have little to no design in your organization but have a lot of dev teams, I am not saying you wouldn’t benefit from a system.

But a system will never be a substitute for the proper ratio of design embedded in your software development process.

A system will only help your teams work more effectively and enable them to focus on the experience, rather than reinvention of established premises.
