More Flexibility Number of Sprints/Sprint Length 

Up until this point, Easy Agile Programs has been quite prescriptive with the configuration options available for setting the length of a Program Increment. When it came to creating the "time-box" of a Program Increment our configuration options were limited to either 10 or 12 weeks, and were made up of either 5, 6, 10 or 12 sprints. 

We initially chose to align the number of sprints and the sprint length options very closely to how the Scaled Agile Framework® prescribed. As we've continued to learn what a typical Increment looks like for our customers, we're introducing ways to make Program Increment length more flexible so that our app fits the way our customers currently plan at scale, and not the other way around! 

In Easy Agile Programs 2.0.7 we support sprints of 1-4 weeks duration, and 4-12 sprints in the increment, giving you more control of your program increment length:
