  • Let's just pretend I never said any of that

    I have to admit that I snickered slightly when I read that. Sorry :-)

    Despite the agreement, we're not pairing and the workload doesn't seem much slower

    I've found that moving to shorter iterations for a bit can sometimes help with this. It forces you to make the stories smaller, which means that people get to work on more stories in the same period of time. The more different stories you get to work on, the more domain knowledge you need to cover, so you have to pair more to keep up. You also get the end-of-iteration reality check a bit more often which will stop you wandering off-course.

    Might be worth a go.

    • We have one-week iterations. We've wanted longer ones, but I think that shorter iterations have been a benefit when we get a bit sloppy.

        Scratch that advice to try shorter iterations then :-)

        That's been pretty much my experience. Longer iterations work well if things are going okay, and moving to shorter ones helps when there are problems.
