There are daily meetings that are usually very short, such as a brief update that lasts a maximum of fifteen minutes. There, they analyze how the previous day went, to plan what will be done during that day and also in case there was any problem in the process.

While the sprint is developing, it is important that changes are not made along the way that could cause the objective to end up being another – that is why it is recommended that they have a maximum period of one month.

In addition, a quality standard must be ensured. The Product Owner will have to be very vigilant in case something needs to be adjusted in mid-air.

Then there is also a meeting to review the sprint, there it is seen if what was proposed has been achieved and also receive feedback. Here it is defined if the developed sprint is accepted or not.

It is analyzed if there were problems along the way and how they were solved. Finally, a retrospective meeting is held, after delivering the work, to find out how work has been done and if there is any process that can be optimized internally.

For example in sprint and scrum

Thinking in a practical way and to better understand what a sprint in scrum is like, we are going to provide an example. The client is a bank and makes a product backlog with several requirements that are planned to be worked on in six months.

In the planning meeting it is agreed that in the first month the design will be seen, in the second how interbank transfers will be made without any problem, in the third how the different products that a person can have within an application will be visualized.

In the fourth month, how to create a new account from the application , in the fifth the different ways to contact a bank agent and in the sixth month that there are no bugs and the application is ready to be released to the general public, with the added value that this means.

After reviewing what a sprint is in Scrum and providing an example, it is now clear that this month-long mini-project is a vital part of organizing a customer engagement. Are you ready to develop one?
