The Sprint in agile
The heart of Scrum is a Sprint, sprint a time-box of one month or 3 weeks during which a “Done”, operational and potentially releasable product Increment is created. Sprints have constant durations
throughout a development efforts. New Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the
Sprints consist of the Sprint Planning Meeting, Daily Scrums, the development work, Sprint Review and the Sprint Retrospective meetings
During the Sprint:
1. No changes are made that would affect the Sprint Goal;
2. Development Team composition remains consistent
3. Quality goals do not reduce
4. Scope re-negotiated between the Product Owner and Development
Each Sprint may be considered a project is not more than one month. Like projects, Sprints are used to achieve something. Each Sprint has a definition of what is to be constructed, design and flexible plan that will guide constructing it, the work and resulting product.
Sprints are limited within one month. Sprints support sureness by ensuring inspection and adaptation of progress in the direction of a goal at least every month. Sprints also limit risk to one month of cost.
Let see some details about cancelling a sprint
Cancelling a Sprint
Sprint can be cancelled before the Sprint time-box is completed. Only the Product Owner has the authority to cancel the Sprint, although he or she may do so under guidance from the stakeholders, the Development Team, or Scrum Master.
A Sprint would be cancelled if the Sprint Goal becomes obsolete. This might occur if the market or technology conditions change. In general, a Sprint should be cancelled. When a Sprint is cancelled, any completed and “Done” Product Backlog Items are reviewed. If part of the work is potentially releasable, the Product Owner typically accepts it. All incomplete Product Backlog Items are re-estimated and move back in the Product Backlog. Sprint cancellations consume resources, since everybody has to reform in another Sprint Planning Meeting to start alternative Sprint. Sprint cancellations are often upsetting to the Scrum Team, and are very rare
