Meetings• Release Planning: the product owner, Scrum team meet to plan and schedule the releases for sprints• Sprint planning: the team meets with the product owner to choose a set of work to deliver during a sprint• Daily scrum: the team meets each day to share struggles and progress• Sprint reviews: the team demonstrates to the product owner what’s completed during the sprint• Sprint retrospectives: the team looks for ways to improve the product and the process.
Sprint Planning Meeting• It is a negotiation between the team and the product owner about what the team will do during the next sprint.• The product owner and all team members agree on a set of sprint goals, which is used to determine which product backlog items to commit from the uncommitted backlog to the sprint.• This portion of the sprint planning meeting is time-boxed to four hours.
Daily Scrum• The meeting starts precisely on time• All are welcome, but normally only the core roles speak• The meeting length is set (time boxed) to 15 minutes• The meeting should happen at the same location and same time every day• During the meeting, each team member answers three questions: – What have you done since yesterday? – What are you planning to do today? – Any impediments/stumbling blocks?• It is the role of the Scrum Master to facilitate resolution of these impediments, although the resolution should occur outside the Daily Scrum itself to keep it under 15 minutes.
Sprint Review Meeting• At the end of each sprint a sprint review meeting is held.• Scrum team shows what they have accomplished during the sprint. Typically this takes the form of a demo of the new features• Participants in the sprint review typically include the Product Owner, the Scrum team and the customers• Progress is assessed against the sprint goal determined during the Sprint planning meeting
Sprint Retrospective Meeting• The team and Scrum Master meet to discuss what went well and what to improve in the next sprint. The product owner does not attend this meeting.• The sprint retrospective should be time-boxed to three hours.
Artifacts• Product backlog: prioritized list of desired project outcomes/features• Sprint backlog: set of work from the product backlog that the team agrees to complete in a sprint, broken into tasks• Impediment backlog: List of issues that are preventing the team from progressing or improving• Burndown charts: at-a-glance look at the work remaining (can have two charts: one for the sprint and one for the overall project)• Velocity chart: To track the performance of each sprint
