Need to Learn More about the Work You’re Doing? Spike It!


Spikes aren’t for everything. But when you need to do research and discover what’s going on, they work. Put them in your estimation toolbox and see what you learn.

I love that your article includes what to do with the code afterwards because I've noticed some teams treat a spike like a chance to get a "head start" working on a future story rather than focusing on the learning.

Hi Allison, thanks! Yes, I'm a firm believer that the spike is for thet learning, not a head start.
