Sprint Planning is an event at the beginning of a Sprint where the Team plans the items they can complete in the next Sprint. They also craft a Goal to act as a focus for their work. Sprint Planning consists of three parts: Setting the Sprint Goal; Forecasting which Work Items the Team will achieve towards the Goal; Deciding how to do the Work. Hint from painful personal experience – the leading cause of poor Sprint Planning is inadequate Product Backlog Refinement.
