Episode 93 - What is sprint planning and how can we align it with our cycles?

Business is a marathon, not a sprint. You have to play the long game on strategy, there is no such thing as an overnight success.

But at the same time, you do need to be moving forward, taking action, and sometimes the marathon analogy can make it feel like you don't achieve anything until you get to the very end... And without those wins you can lose motivation and momentum.

One of the concepts I worked with in the corporate world was agile and sprints.

Sprints are a short defined period of time, where you break down the end goal into small chunks that can be achieved inside that sprint, and so while you are focused on the end goal, you're also focused on making progress each and every sprint.

Over the holiday period I realised that our cycles are perfect for implementing sprint planning.

In this episode I'm sharing more about what sprint planning is, and how we can use it with a cyclical approach.

Key points in this episode:

  • Each sprint you plan to do what is achievable in that sprint. You don't try and do as much as possible as fast as possible.
  • Utilising sprints helps you to feel like you're making progress, to see it, to get the dopamine hit that comes with ticking something off your to do list.
  • When you align your sprint planning with the phases of your cycle, you can take advantage of your cyclical nature to make progress on your goals
  • How I am implementing sprint planning in my business this year.
