Customization vs. Configuration in Evolving Design Systems - Spotify R&D

As the product grows — and so does the team — it can sometimes seem like the team is outgrowing the current set of components and styles. Your once-perfect button doesn’t quite cover the new specs needed for a new feature. Some restrictions in the way a component is coded means it would be quicker and easier to spin up something new, rather than pull from the component library.

Marketer

Sales Is About Buying, Not Selling - Entrepreneur's handbook
