      We are releasing every quarter and just decided to have an "innovation" sprint in between each release. Partly to decompress, partly to let people do whatever they fancy for a bit...only caveat is they have to come back and do a little "show and tell" on what they got up to. We haven't had our first one yet, but I really like the idea and think it will be worthwhile.

      My first thought is, "Why has the team lost sight of the bigger picture
      architecturally?" Why hasn't that been a consideration during all sprints?
