    People forget that to get a system running, you need people to first build it, and then continuing maintaining it. If anything, it creates more work rather than less, at least this holds true for bigger organisation.

    Tackling changes and updates from multiple teams, along with communication, documentation, and releases, heck it's a teams worth of work on it's own. Smaller teams can afford to skip some steps, but the true worth is about efficiency, so designers can focus on other parts that attention is sorely needed. At some point, you'll have to split you attention and get back into greasing the system's gear.
