  • People used to laugh at me behind my back before I was in shape or successful. Once I lost a lot of weight, I was so excited that I opened my own gym, and began helping others. I began to get quite a large following of students, and finally, I didn't catch someone laughing at me behind my back any longer. CLICK HERE NOW ➤➤ http://t.cn/A6PnIGtz

Sprint Planning in Scrum and How to do it without Tearing Your Eyes Out

  1. 1. Sprint Planning in Scrum And how to do it without tearing your eyes out.
  2. 2. The Scrum Guide Says… Scrum prescribes four, formal events for inspection and adaptation…: • Daily Scrum • Sprint Review • Sprint Retrospective • Sprint Planning
  3. 3. The Scrum Guide Says… Q. What is planned at the Sprint Planning? A. The work to be performed Q. Who creates this plan? A. The entire Scrum Team Q. How long is it? A. Eight hours for 30-day Sprint and usually less for shorter Sprints.
  4. 4. The Scrum Guide Says… Sprint Planning answers two questions: What can be delivered in the Increment resulting from the upcoming Sprint? How will the work needed to deliver the Increment be achieved?
  5. 5. The Scrum Guide Says… The Development Team works to forecast the functionality that will be developed during the Sprint. The Product Owner discusses the objective that the Sprint should achieve and the Product Backlog items that, if completed in the Sprint, would achieve the Sprint Goal What can be delivered in the Increment resulting from the upcoming Sprint?
  6. 6. Sprint Planning Example The Development Team says: The Product Owner says: These two PBI’s will accomplish the objective of reducing support’s time spent resetting user passwords. The Scrum Team decides the Sprint Goal should be: Automatic Login Credential Recovery Based on our historical velocity of 30 and considering that Bill is out this Sprint, we forecast we can develop these next PBI’s this Sprint.
  7. 7. The Scrum Guide Says… The Development Team decides how it will build this functionality into a “Done” product Increment during the Sprint. The Product Owner can help clarify the selected Product Backlog items and make trade-offs. How will the work needed to deliver the Increment be achieved?
  8. 8. The Scrum Guide Says… By the end of the Sprint Planning, the Development Team should be able to explain to the Product Owner and Scrum Master how it intends to work as a self-organizing team to accomplish the Sprint Goal and create the anticipated Increment. How will the work needed to deliver the Increment be achieved?
  9. 9. Sprint Planning Example The Development Team has planned for the first days of the Sprint by decomposing the work into units of one day or less. Though not specified by Scrum, the Development Team likes small units of work to minimize the risk of weak estimation practices.
  10. 10. Quick Review Q. Who works to forecast the functionality that will be developed during the Sprint? A. The Development Team
  11. 11. Quick Review Q. What is planned at the Sprint Planning? A. The work to be performed Q. Who creates this plan? A. The entire Scrum Team Q. How long is it? A. Eight hours for 30-day Sprint and usually less for shorter Sprints.
  12. 12. Quick Review Q. Who crafts the Sprint Goal? A. The entire Scrum Team
  13. 13. Quick Review Q. What 3 inputs does the Development Team use to forecast the functionality that will be developed during the Sprint? A1. The Product Backlog A2. The Development Team’s past performance A3. The Development Team’s projected capacity
  14. 14. Quotations Set the Stage “What are you preparing. You’re always preparing. Just go!” – Dark Helmet, Space Balls 1987 “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – My Mom, Every Time I Had to Clean My Room “Just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down in the most delightful way!” – My personal life coach, Mary Poppins
  15. 15. Don’t Tear Your Eyes Out! What do you mean there are no acceptance criteria on the next 20 User Stories? You mean we wasted 4 hours designing a new email subsystem when one already exists? I’ve been staring at a monitor for 3 hours. Where’s my sippy cup?!
  16. 16. Refine that Backlog Set aside focused time to understand the Product Backlog. Craft just enough, just in time. Stagger Refinement for maximum, “cognitive stewing” without impeding.
  17. 17. Anticipate Challenges Lack of cross-functionality for work Customer collaboration e.g. requirement questions Reduced capacity
  18. 18. Keep it Fresh Take frequent breaks if needed Encourage all to participate actively Change the format to engage the mind differently Provide fizzy beverages
  19. 19. Let’ Taco ‘bout It
  20. 20. Happy Planning!
