- Sprint is a container that contains all other events (Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, Sprint Retrospective).
- It’s the core Scrum event during which all the work is done.
- Time-box for the sprint is 1 month. The length of the sprint can change however, it is not recommended to change it often.
- The sprint should be long enough to meet the sprint goal, but short enough for the sprint goal to remain up to date, with respect to changing environment.
- Shorter sprints provide a higher frequency of improvements and learning, reducing the risk and the cost.
- The main benefit of the sprint is a reduction of risk and the distribution of costs.
- The sprint can be canceled if the goal of the sprint becomes obsolete.
- Visual tools such as Burndown charts are used to monitor the progress of work in the sprint.
- Burndown is a chart showing the initial scope of the sprint and the remaining work as the sprint progresses.
