The idea of working less to be more productive is gaining ground around the world, although it remains limited here in Quebec. A reduction in working hours can help improve workers' well-being, reduce stress, and enhance productivity. Moreover, it can be a factor in attracting and retaining employees for companies, especially for young parents and aging workers. Some Quebec-based companies, have started offering a four-day workweek, which requires a careful examination of how to work to improve efficiency. However, for me it is essential not to concentrate the workload into four days by increasing the number of working hours, risking the work-family balance.

I am also interested in a variation on this topic which would be: how can I ensure that my experts only spend 4 days a week on the day-to-day, and have a real 20% of their time that they can spend on thinking about other topics.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.

My personal experience. 

I usually get the feedback and go back with data driven analysis providing details to cross leaders to understand the context and make decision basis data and and not gut feeling.
