The next fall the partners were asked if they wanted to do another round to help us architect a replicable process. All of them agreed. This time we defined a nine-week sprint. We did another liftoff and off they went.
This second sprint ran smoothly but had a different energy. The partners were now like old friends. While we didn't have the freshness, there was much more comfort. Some of the partners pushed new learning, but by now some of the teachers were moving forward on their own with a lot more comfort. The calls were not as critical for their creative explorations.
When we came back for the second retro, it was now clear that we were ready for the next challenge: expanding to other schools.
