The Sprint is an iteration of work, typically 1 month or less in duration, where a potentially releasable product increment is produced. Sprints have consistent durations throughout a development effort. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint. The Sprint contains several other events such as Sprint Planning, Daily Scrums, the Sprint Review and the Sprint Retrospective, in addition to the development work.

Some rules that apply to the Sprint include:

  1. No changes to the Sprint are allowed that would jeopardize the Sprint Goal
  2. Quality does not decrease
  3. Scope may be renegotiated between the Development Team and Product Owner

Tools/Tracker

Sprint work items are typically tracked on a sprint board divided into columns such as "Not Started," "Work in Progress," and "Done," similar to a Kanban board. This can be a physical board with notecards, but distributed teams may need to use an online tool.

JIRA is a popular tool to track a sprint backlog and integrate with other development tools. Microsoft offers Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), which is incorporated into their Azure platform. Other tools offer card views, including Trello, MS Project, Aha!, and SmartSheet, among others.
