Episode 54 - Visioning The Sprint
June 17, 2018
The nature of Scrum is a cycle. Every two weeks feels like a brand new mission. Sometimes, its easy to lose sight of the overall vision and lose our sense of passion and shared purpose. A Sprint Theme, or Vision, can help with that.
- Use the sprint theme not as a list of work or stories to complete in the next two weeks, but as a commitment to changing the world - what is the most important thing we can achieve in this upcoming increment?
- It can be stories or features but it also can be improvements, clearing impediments or winning support
- Make sure the team builds it together - unlike organizational and product visions, a sprint vision is owned by the team, for the team.
