Is there any point to organising your work into sprints if your team was all made redundant and you're the only employee left?

You can call it “jogging on the spot” if you want a joke to cheer up, but practically: I quite like kanban style organisation for solo/few people organising work

kanban is pretty much an endless backlog/icebox without sprints. The part that I like about using kanban solo or small team is not having to plan sprints or have such rigid timeframes around it, but also that kanban has a focus on “reducing number of items in progress at any one time” - this is especially helpful in small teams because any time someone asks for something it tends to interrupt, and before you know it you have 6 items “in progress” without actually devoting enough attention to all of them. Focussing on 1 item at a time helps you get greater throughput
It can be nice to bring in the regular cadence stuff like planning, reviews, and retrospectives, but with one or two people you usually don't really need a defined time to have those conversations, and if people aren't working towards the same goal those meetings are a waste of time for at least some people in the room
