The Growing Problem of Product Creep
We’re living through a renaissance of software. For every task inside a growing company, there are dozens of tools lined up to help. Free tools from ProductHunt. Platforms to solve all our problems. From the CEO, to the marketer, to the VP of sales, we’re all trying, buying, and adding new tools to the mix.
But after a while, something starts to happen. As our list of tools grows, so does the amount of time and attention they need. The scale tips from our tools working for us, to us working for our tools. It starts as an inconvenience, but it can turn into a monster. We call it product creep.
