A sprint is the fundamental unit of development in Scrum. It is a repeatable and fixed timeboxed period during which the Scrum team completes a particular work and makes it available for review. The duration for each sprint is typically within one week to one month, with the most common being two weeks.
In the Scrum framework, Scrum teams usually hold meetings at the beginning of each sprint to discuss and agree on what items to deliver at the end of that sprint, steps they will take to achieve it and to develop a product backlog listing all the tasks they will undertake during the sprint.
Daily Scrum (or stand-up) Meeting
During this meeting, each team member will quickly and transparently disclose what they did since the last stand-up, what they will do that day, how they will go about it and any deterrent to their progress. This meeting should not last longer than 15 minutes.
This is an informal meeting at the end of a sprint, where the team presents the completed work to the Product Owner or other stakeholders. The purpose of the sprint review is to elicit feedback and encourage collaboration. Furthermore, at the end of the sprint review, the scrum team will have an updated Product Backlog with potential backlog items for the next Sprint.
At the end of a sprint, a meeting will be held to discuss and reflect on the just concluded sprint. The team will focus on their overall performance, identify areas for improvement, then, agree on the processes to take towards continuous improvement.
