How to Use Scrum for Relationships

Plan a wedding. Save for retirement. Find “the one” you want to be with. Teach your children how to set goals and make decisions.

How does scrum make these life-altering events easier? Scrum and other common agile practices walk you through the process of:

  1. identifying what success will look like (vision);
  2. setting goals to get there, starting with the most immediate and important goal first (roadmap & release planning);
  3. starting with something, then trying another thing (sprints);
  4. learning from it, refining it (inspect & adapt—sprint reviews & retrospectives);
  5. moving on to the next goal (get to done and release it).

You know where you want to go, but you don’t have to get there right now. Set long-term goals, then break them down into manageable chunks and work the plan one chunk at a time.

This is scrum for your personal life.
