I’m curious if anyone is doing shorter cycle lengths than six weeks?
The Adjust to Your Size appendix says:
Six weeks might not be the exact time frame for your team.
We’re a small(ish) startup with five engineers and one designer. For our first cycle, none of the pitches had an appetite of more than three weeks, so we decided to make our cycle length three weeks with a one week cool-down.
That feels right for this first cycle, but I also feel like it boxes us into an almost-sprint-like time frame. What if we have a legitimate six week appetite for a project in the future – do we adjust the length of each cycle as necessary?
