really liked it

The 80/20 rule, OODA loop and the Toyota Production Method all make Scrum. Having worked in the valley Scrum and Agile have largely been bastardized by Jira and the likes so actually reading about it I realized the system is super simple and yet we have now made it super complicated.

Essentially the idea is as following:

1. Have a goal that you want to reach. I’d say apply quarterly OKRs here.
2. Build a team and break down tasks into chunks and pick the 20% of tasks that give 80% of the value of the goal.
3. Break those stories into individual sprint. Define a definition of done, have a score for the story as it pertains to the goal, and the stories are only closed if the customer is interacting with the end result. Work on the sprint
4. Have a retrospective to figure out the one small thing that could be improved in the next sprint, track velocity by having team pick ext set of stories.
5. Goto 3
