Troika Consulting: "Should my team use longer Sprints when they are unable to deliver an increment?"
Apr 10, 2020 Season 1 Episode 34
The Liberators

One of our patrons, Chris Davies, shares with us a challenge that he and his team are facing. What should you do when your team is unable to deliver done and working software within a Sprint? When is it okay to lengthen a Sprint? And what considerations come into play.

In this episode we use the Liberating Structure "Troika Consulting" to offer help. In true Troika-fashion, Chris first shares his challenge. We then explore the challenge with Chris with some open-ended questions. Then, we start exchanging ideas, suggestions and questions for 10 minutes while Chris listens. Afterwards, Chris shares some of his takeaways. Although our ideas are based on many assumptions, the idea of Troika is that simply listening to other people talk about your challenge can already generate ideas that you haven't considered before.
