Definition of Swarm
Short for Team Swarm.
My guidance to Teams is that the Sprint length should be approximately three times as long as it takes to Swarm on an average medium-size Story and get it to Done.
These non-coders will be Coordinators for non-coding Stories and Swarm on the coding Stories, while the coders will stay-at-home with their individual coding Story – they will only Swarm after their story is Done.
Our Sprint Goal was to Swarm on 1 Story at a time.
