What is the Scrum Framework? In Scrum, the prescribed events are used to create regularity. All events are time-boxed events, such that every event has a maximum duration. The events are described more elaborately below.
The heart of Scrum is a Sprint, a time-box of two weeks or one month during which a potentially releasable product increment is created. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint. Sprints consist of the Sprint planning, daily scrums, the development work, the Sprint review, and the Sprint retrospective.
- In Sprint planning: the work to be performed in the Sprint is planned collaboratively by the Scrum Team.
- The Daily Scrum Meeting: is a 15-minute time-boxed event for the Scrum Team to synchronize the activities and create a plan for that day.
- A Sprint Review: is held at the end of the Sprint to inspect the Increment and make changes to the Product Backlog, if needed.
- The Sprint Retrospective: occurs after the Sprint Review and prior to the next Sprint Planning. In this meeting, the Scrum Team is to inspect itself and create a plan for improvements to be enacted during the subsequent Sprint.
