Using Multiple Life Cycles in Combination on a Project, Part 3

I’ve also used Agile life cycles (Scrum with different size timeboxes) in combination on a project.

Multiple Scrum combo lifecycle

Here, the developers in the corporate location had a series of features that were big. I did suggest they break the features apart into smaller chunks for ease of estimation and implementation, but they didn’t want to 🙂 The remote team was responsible for smaller chunks of features, and were having trouble estimating the size of their stories. They decided to move to 2-week timeboxes to reduce what they were trying to estimate.
