As we use the term in this blog, a policymaker is someone who is responsible for developing, revising, or approving organizational policies that affect technical debt management. Organizational policy is the framework of principles that guide policymakers, decision makers, and everyone in the organization as they carry out their responsibilities.
Some organizational policies that do not even mention technical debt can affect the way the organization manages technical debt. For this reason, all policymakers are potentially involved in formulating policy that affects the ability of the organization to manage technical debt.
