Feedback and Questions

An amazing sprints, but I have an off-topic question who decide the sprint codename? Because they are amazing lol


(Henrik Mitsch) #3

This was @pierros’ suggestion: During the planning meeting we open the techcrunch website and take the major headline as sprint name. It’s fun every week.

What is a “Search Improvement Spike”?

What Work Week? Mind sharing more information about that one?


(Henrik Mitsch) #5

We use the term spike to indicate that we are aiming to generate insight instead of shipping product.
If you want to know about the search improvements we actually plan, may I point you at this Taiga story? Feel free to comment on it here (not sure if Taiga allows for anonymous commenting).

It is a week of work happening with IAM (mostly IT) folks and VMS (mostly MoFo) folks and ParSys people in two weeks in Berlin.
On the VMS side it’s mostly about Clubs and even more specifically, identifying and scoping shared software related needs between programs.

Hope that helps? Is the second answer containing too much jargon? If yes, please call me out on it.

Best regards,
Henrik
