Sprints may be formed by any structure of the yearly meeting including councils, collaboratives, threads, or committees. Friends who identify a need and have the skills to address it can form a sprint under the authority of any structure or substructure of the yearly meeting. The supervising structure is responsible for setting the goals and timeframe for the sprint.
Sprints are laid down when the project is complete. If a project seems to lead to another one, a new sprint should be formed in order to maintain the singular and task-focused nature of a sprint. A sprint may be laid down by its sponsoring structure if it seems not to be moving forward. It also may choose to lay itself down if it can’t complete its task or any other reason.
