Sprint Planning or also Sprint Planning Meeting or Sprint Planning Session always takes place at the beginning of a Sprint. It is an activity in Scrum and is performed as a time box, that is, with a fixed duration.
At the meeting, the requirements and tasks that are to be implemented in the sprint are planned. The prerequisite for Sprint Planning is the backlog. The various tasks are collected there so that they can be implemented later. The team can decide for itself how many and which tasks are to be processed in the sprint.
Who takes part in Sprint Planning?
The whole Scrum team takes part in Sprint Planning: the development team, the Scrum Master and the Product Owner. The meeting is organized by the Product Owner and moderated by the Scrum Master, who is also responsible for communication. It is best if the Product Owner has already spoken to the stakeholders before the meeting to discuss the requirements.
Sprint Planning Process
1. the product owner presents the sprint goal and tasks and answers questions from the team
2. the time for the tasks is estimated
3. then the team can make a statement about which tasks can be completed by the end of the sprint.
In practice, a distinction is made between Sprint Planning 1 and 2:
Sprint Planning Phase 1
This is about what is to be done
- The product owner says what it’s all about and gives the development team an overall view. From this version a Sprint Goal is then created. The backlog provides information about the capacity of the development team and its performance to date.
- The product owner identifies the business and technical background by naming the tasks from the backlog.
- The effort required should also be estimated
- The discussed requirements are then dragged into the sprint, taking the estimates into account. When the sprint is full, the remaining tasks can be carried over to the next one.
- Sprint Planning 1 ends with the development team implementing the requirements.
This is about how it’s done
- This phase is about how the selected work is done.
- After the sprint goal is set and the various tasks are selected, the development team decides which ones can be done
- Visualization of the tasks on the task board
- At the end of this phase the team should explain how it wants to work to achieve the sprint goal.
