Process Debt: a First Exploration
Paper i proceeding, 2020

Process Debt, like Technical Debt, can be the
source of short-term benefits but often is harmful in the long
term for a software organization. However, we do not know
much about Process Debt from current literature. We
conducted an exploratory study of Process Debt in four
international organizations by interviewing 16 practitioners.
The findings show that Process Debt can be a harmful
phenomenon that needs attention and new practices, as it is
different from Technical Debt. We provide an initial
framework, composed by a definition and a conceptual model
for Process Debt, showing types, causes, consequences, and debt
accumulation patterns.
