Sprint Planners

  • Update your Sprint Planner in this folder.

  • Every week, you will be expected to create a new slide in your Sprint Planner by 8:00 AM Monday morning.

Week 4 Presentation

  • We’re using a new template this week - one that’s more in line with a typical pitch.
    You still only have three (3) minutes.

  • Make a copy of the attached template and update your presentation to the CSVP folder here.

    • There are no exceptions for why your slides should not be in the correct folder.
      You will not pitch if your slides are not uploaded correctly or on time.

  • The file name must be named {MyCompanyName}_Week4. Renaming the file allows the staff to move more quickly, please be cognizant that you are following all of the instructions outlined above.


  • Continue tracking and conducting customer interviews! You may be asked to share your CRM with your EIR or the Leadership Team this week.
