Learning is the process of acquiring new understanding, knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, and preferences. It’s not just to complete courses, it requires practice and go to beyond reading a book or completing a training course.
For that reason, I conduct learning sprints (or slots). This is how I organize my sprints.
How are they defined?
- Defined with V2MOM model.
- To be in a natural quarter: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4.
- Document the different learns.
