Around New Zealand, Sprints are a key day-to-day component of how an organisation becomes successful. However, not all organisations understand how Sprints can benefit them.
Sprints can help you get the ball running and move you from doing nothing to all hands on deck.
This article below, explains how doing incorporating Sprints into the day to day operations of your business will benefit you in the long run.
Sprints help you start: When a big problem is looming, it can be tough to dig in. Sprints make an excellent commitment device. Sprints move you from abstract to concrete: Too many projects get stuck in an alternate universe where debates, theories, and hunches are plentiful, but progress is rare. Sprints keep you focused on what’s important: With all the noise, distractions, and demands for your attention at the office, it’s almost impossible to see which issues are really the most critical. Sprints force crisp decision-making: Business-as-usual decision-making is busted: we strive for consensus; we don’t make tough calls; we aren’t transparent about how choices are made. Sprints encourage fast follow-up: Your team will accomplish a ton in every sprint, but the knock-on effects — the confidence of knowing you’re on the right road — are even more powerful.
