Scrum Sprint Planning

Scrum Sprint planning starts the sprint by choosing work for the sprint. The Scrum team participates to figure out, estimate and plan what needs to be done in the sprint. Time-box is 8 hours, for one month Sprint. The outcome is a Sprint Backlog which is composed of The Sprint Goal, the Product Backlog items selected for the Sprint, and the plan for delivering them.

Scrum team members and Sprint Planning

  • Product Owner should ensure that the most important Backlog items are known enough for a discussion to start.
  • Developers need to be aware of what is likely to go into the sprint and have thought about how the individual items could be implemented.
  • The Scrum master should be ready to help with the way Sprint planning is managed or to facilitate it if requested.
  • People outside the Scrum team can also participate if the Scrum Team needs their advice.
