The cost of reworking, or shipping now and dealing with consequences later, doesn’t seem crucial until it is. Instead, help your engineers understand the cost impact of their technical decisions so they can build cost-effective solutions.

Cost allocation tags can be a pain in the neck, especially at scale or when you need to merge with a team or company that has a different tagging system.
