As a tech lead I see my primary contribution as saying “no” to features that co-workers think are important but can’t justify. The real trick is knowing when a new feature adds linear complexity (its own weight only) or geometric complexity (interacts with other features). Both should be avoided, but the latter requires extra-convincing justification.

Operation Overlord was the largest seaborne invasion in military history, with more than 156,000 Allied troops storming the beaches of France.
