Discussion on: Is Why more important than How?

I think you made a great point here. The how is automatically recorded by the implementation and that is the only useful way of tracking it and make sure it stays relevant. On the contrary, the why is hardly recorded and is harder to keep track of. Keeping track of the why might help deciding whether the current how is no longer relevant or not effective at delivering the originally intended value.
Thank you for your take on this 🙇
