It can feel daunting to try out a comprehensive solution to technical debt management — will all engineers buy into this? What about product owners? And will it play nice with our existing issue tracker?

We recommend identifying your primary use case and running a focused 2-week trial to assess Stepsize's value. In our experience, that's the best way to know whether Stepsize is a good fit without disrupting your sprints.

Step 1: Identify your use case [15-30 minutes]

Trial stage: before your trial starts

Step 2: Get setup & ready to go [15 minutes]

Trial stage: day 1

Step 3: Start using Stepsize

Trial stage: days 1-7

We recommend setting a time to do this together with your teammates, since it'll be more fun and help surface questions you have about the product and how it fits into your current workflow.
