What is Scrum Sprint?
A Scrum Sprint is a regular, repeatable work cycle in the Scrum method in which the work is completed and prepared for review. Scrum sprints are fundamental development units in the Scrum method. In general, Scrum Sprints are less than 30 days in length.
All Scrum sprints are preceded by a sprint planning meeting, during which the sprint tasks are set up and identified, and an estimated definition of the sprint goals is made. The Product Owner and the team decide what needs to be moved from the Product Backlog to the Sprint Backlog.
During the Scrum Sprint, the teams check in to the daily Scrum meeting, known as the daily stand-up meeting. Such meetings give the team the opportunity to update project status, discuss solutions and challenges, and show product owners their progress.
A Scrum Sprint is followed by a Sprint Review, which is a review of the process to identify lessons that can be used to improve the next Sprint.
A sprint retrospective follows the sprint review. This meeting reflects how people worked during the sprint phase. It gives the team a chance to discuss the sprint and think of better alternatives to do things efficiently.
