      We're in our 2nd year of using 2 week iterations.  That length of time seems perfect for our company.  We have a PO who is constantly coming up with new ideas and changing priorities, I just can't imagine the amount of rework we would have to do if we went a whole month.  A couple months back, we did a 3 week iteration because we had a deadline set that would have been in mid-iteration.  We then did three 1 week iterations to get back on track and most of our work was going to be minor tweaks to the release we had just put out.

      I'm actually curious how common are the 4-weeks sprints, as suggested
      by Scrum. In our company, I can only think of one project out of quite
      a few that have felt that four weeks might be good for them (or to be
      more precise, they have felt the two-week sprints were a little too
      short). In most cases, two weeks have been considered good, and then
      there are some very innovation intensive projects that have used
      one-week sprints and felt them best for themselves.

      Any more comprehensive experiences?

      Yours Sincerely,

      Petri Heiramo
