If you realise it's a losers game then you can adjust your approach.

You need professionals and experienced developers to lead software development, set standards and keep quality high.

Smaller projects can have lower standards because there is less code, reduce complexity and fewer other developers to slow down.

On large projects quality, standards and fast feedback is important. You need better developers and create software to higher standards (devops, unit testing, documentation, processes, automation, code reviews, etc)

like most new things is over hyped. Low code is great for small unrelated applications. This makes up a very small amount of the required software.

Many of the slow boring processes and steps in software development are to create software that is easy to maintain. If you miss these you end up technical debt and difficulty.

The good low code development I have seen has been done by developers and with a senior developer watching over things.

Tools don't make good software, developers do
