How Does Sprint Planning Work?
A SoundNotes Tutorial

Dave Prior
Reading: How Does Sprint Planning Work?A SoundNotes Tutorial

In this week’s SoundNotes we’re focusing on one of the fundamental elements in Scrum: The Sprint Planning Meeting. During the podcast, Dave Prior reviews the key aspects of Sprint Planning: its purpose, how it works, who attends, what it produces, and tips to help you make sure yours are achieving the desired result.

If you want to help protect your team from over (or under) committing during Sprint Planning, each team member is going to need to have a solid understanding of their capacity for work during the Sprint. If you’d like to check out the Individual Capacity Calculator that Dave mentioned in the podcast, you can find that here: Individual Capacity Calculator

And if you’d like to check out the official explanation of Sprint Planning and how it fits into a Sprint, check out the Sprint Planning section of The Scrum Guide.
