I made similar observations as Kevin E. Schlabach in his blog post
Every time you shorten your iteration length, your team will realize that there are things that are time-consuming and painful.
I asked my current team (just recently started on a new product):
What would change if we would have 1 week sprints?
I got a couple of: “No good”, “Bad idea”.
- It would be difficult to produce something because we sit so much in meetings
- With this setup it doesn’t work, because we are not always available.
These are great answers with 2 major pains that we need to fix.
Just thinking about shortening your sprints, already helped highlight them…
