The sprint starts with the Sprint Planning event. From the scrum guide, you need to replay the question:


Why is this Sprint valuable?

What can be done this Sprint?

How will the chosen work get done?

Scrum guide 2020 – Sprint Planning

So the first question is about value. So there is the product owner who needs to explain the sprint goals and how to increase the product’s value through it.

The second question is about what you can do to achieve that value. So there are the Developers who select items from the top of the product backlog with the help of the product owner, who explains the item

The third question is about a plan made by the developers, needed to meet the definition of done of each item selected from the product backlog.

The Sprint Goal, the Product Backlog items selected for the Sprint, and the plan for delivering them are referred to as the Sprint Backlog.

In addition, like every event, this event is timeboxed at a max of 8 hours for a sprint of 1 month. Therefore, for shorter sprints, you can have faster sprint planning.

Remember that it is an event for all the scrum team. The Product Owner gives the goals, the Developer makes the plan for this goal, and the Scrum Master is there to foster the scrum theory and offer your help just in case. In addition, remember that only the Developers can choose how much work to do in the plan and how to do it.

For the exam you need to rememember:

  • The sprint planning is timeboxed at a max of 8 hours for a sprint of 1 month. For shorter sprints, you can have faster sprint planning;
