The Sprint is an iteration of work, typically 1 month or less in duration, where a potentially releasable product increment is produced. Sprints have consistent durations throughout a development effort. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint. The Sprint contains several other events such as Sprint Planning, Daily Scrums, the Sprint Review and the Sprint Retrospective, in addition to the development work.
Some rules that apply to the Sprint include:
- No changes to the Sprint are allowed that would jeopardize the Sprint Goal
- Quality does not decrease
- Scope may be renegotiated between the Development Team and Product Owner
