Scrum Events


Scrum Events

  • Scrum defined five mandatory Scrum events: the Sprint (as a container for all events), Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, and Sprint Retrospective.
  • The Product Backlog refinement activity is NOT a mandatory Scrum event.
  • All Scrum events should be held at the same time and place to reduce complexity.
