24281RE: [scrumdevelopment] Sprint cycles?
- Oct 5, 2007
I’m pretty new to Scrum Development myself, but I find it best to stick to cycles that are the same duration rather than constrain them from Monday to Friday.
What this means to us is that while starting a ten-day sprint on a Thursday instead of a Monday, for example, isn’t as neat in the calendar, it allows the team to develop a rhythm for each sprint and also gives us a fairer sprint velocity calculation.
This is only my take on the issue, however – I’d be keen to hear from other people on this subject also.

Subject: [scrumdevelopment] Sprint cycles?
We have been discussing pros and cons of running a sprint from Monday
to Friday (we use 2 week sprints so it is actually Monday to next
Friday) compared to having another "cycle", say Wednesday to Tuesday.
We have always used Mo - Fr, so I would very much like to hear
opinions from people using another "cycle"
