Conduct sprints


Conducting a sprint leads to an agreed, concrete and verifiable outcome.

Basic idea

A sprint includes all planning, realization and coordination activities over a fixed period of time. They are formally defined in SCRUM as events and include Sprint Planning, Daily SCRUM, Sprint Review and Sprint Retrospective.

The planned outcome of a sprint is documented in the sprint backlog.

At the end of a sprint, there is an increment that has the attribute of an executable product, regardless of whether or not it is delivered to the user as a release.


The sprints are planned as a whole in the release plan.

The project management assigns responsibility for the execution of a sprint to the SCRUM team. The SCRUM team organizes itself and adheres to the defined agreements of the agile working methods documented in the project management plan.
