We’ve all heard the reports that tell us how multi-tasking is not effective, how context-switching causes us unrecoverable down-time. We know from this that we need to be more tightly focused on a single goal (per sprint), one that we can organise our work around, one that more easily helps us know that what we’re doing will deliver something of value. That’s good as far as it goes.
Now I’m going to mess with that. I’m going to suggest that each and every sprint should have two goals.
