It's a Hill.Be it a new feature or bug - you need to thoroughly discuss it, agree on specs, and code without interruptions. An Issue that is Uphill (before the Peak) is being discussed. At the Peak, discussion is over and your team has agreed on the specs. A Downhill Issue (after the Peak) is being executed, without interruption from discussions, by the assigned team member.As a product manager or team leader, you instantly know which Issues need your attention.
