Subsequently, one may also ask, why does a development team need a sprint goal quizlet?
A) A Sprint Goal only gives purpose to Sprint 0. B) A Sprint Goal ensures that all of the Product Backlog items selected for the Sprint are implemented.
Likewise, who is responsible for achieving a sprint goal? The Product Owner discusses the objective that the Sprint should achieve and the Product Backlog items that, if completed in the Sprint, would achieve the Sprint Goal.
Keeping this in view, how do you help a team meet the Sprint Goal?
Remember we have to actually pay attention to it to help provide focus.
- Make it visible.
- Teach the team to talk about progress towards the Sprint Goal in the Daily Scrum. Development Team members often give updates about the Product Backlog Items they are working on, and the Sprint Goal is never discussed.
Is a sprint goal Mandatory?
Sprint Goal has been an integral part of Sprint Planning since the beginning; the Scrum team crafts it and it is one of the outcomes of Sprint Planning. Not making it mandatory also allows teams to be flexible and decide whether it makes sense for them to have a Sprint Goal or not.
