A Better Way Than Sprints

When you think Agile, you think Sprints. When you think Sprints, you think of a lot of overhead for little return –and if you don't, you should.
Sprint based development slows down progress, adds overhead, and treats your resources like mindless cogs. There's a better way.
If story points, burn down charts, and the same complaints in all your retrospective are getting you down, then this is your chance to see an alternative approach to agile that removes the pointless in exchange for progress.
