Shape Up

My thanks to Basecamp for sponsoring DF last week to promote Shape Up. If your team struggles to make progress on projects, it’s time to reconsider the way you work.

There’s a whole new approach called Shape Up. It’s not agile, it’s not scrum, and your walls won’t be lined with Post-It Notes. There are no daily stand ups, design sprints, backlogs, velocity tracking, or busywork. None of that.

Shape Up is an entirely different approach. One developed and honed over 15 years of building one of the world’s most popular collaboration tools. The method is unlike anything you’ve tried — and quite a bit better.

I’ve been friends with and following the team from Basecamp for as long as DF has existed and I’ve always been inspired by their willingness to share everything they know. Read up for free at
