In our company, the CI/CD processes are very long (up to 2.5 hours). Since this is a blocking step in the release flow it causes holdups of our fast-paced releases. Eventually, we are getting a backlog of unreleased features, which could be mitigated by releasing many things at once, but that comes with additional risks.
This is a great example how to apply the problem solving tools help to save time of a process. Good job.
