Spike solutions are one of the ways extreme programming teams “figure out answers to tough technical or design problems“. Their use has evolved over the years and as they’ve been adopted by Scrum Teams. There are also many teams out there who may be using spikes in a way that creates more work without solving problems.

In this episode of SoundNotes, Stephen Cavaliere joins Dave to talk all about Spikes. In order to make things as simple as possible the podcast has been broken up into three parts:

  • Part 1: What is a Spike? How does it work? (Begins at 02:42)
  • Part 2: How do you estimate Spikes? (Begins at 11:55)
  • Part 3: How does a team evolve their use of Spikes as they mature, or move through Basecamps (Begins at 23:32)
