      Description

      Several customers have suggested to me that the agile community should rename sprints to relays.  And if enough people agree, Jira should too. 

      • Sprinting conveys a singular focus on speed. Relay focuses on team speak and successful handoffs. #systemsthinking @#devops
      • Sprinting is exhausting. Relays get the best from all but build in time for reflection and recovery. 
      • Sprinting focuses on the finish line. Relays focus on the finish line and the collaboration to get there. 
      • Sprinting treats developers like machines to be optimized and measured above all. Relays treat developers as part of a team collaborating for efficiency, speed, and outcome. 

      It is a nuance, and one easily ignored, but for those of us who spend m-f sprinting, it makes a difference.
