He explains the timing of this decision and how it was essential to balance between losing time on inefficiencies and missing milestones and opportunities.
The restructuring involved moving from expertise-based teams to cross-functional squads, which allowed them to refer to their code in a more modular way and parallelize work on different topics while losing less focus.
