Shape Up Method

The Shape Up Method is a project management approach developed by Basecamp, specifically tailored for software development. Instead of using traditional methods like Scrum or Kanban, Shape Up focuses on fixed-length cycles called "bets." During a bet, the team works on a specific project without any changes or disruptions. This method emphasizes clear project scopes and allows the team to focus on getting things done without constant interruptions. It's like having a dedicated time to fully concentrate on completing a puzzle without someone constantly changing the pieces or distracting you.
