The Scrum Team decides the Sprint Duration. The Scrum Team includes Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Development Team.

Scrum Master facilitates the meeting to get the consensus. The team chooses the length which can work for the project.
Choosing a length too long will delay feedbacks from stakeholders. Choosing too short can lead to a struggle with completing work and may also result in weaker DOD.

The team considers various factors-

- The team needs to see the context of the project. Like when the goal of the project to bring a new food recipe, the Sprint length can be only a day, where you try something and show to customers to get the feedback. Your mobile app sprint duration can be a week or two. It could be based on what would be the best time to get feedback. How much you need to develop before getting the feedback.

Also, when risks are high, the team chooses the shorter duration, because they need to validate fast their work before moving ahead. They need to see frequently if they need to change the direction.

apart from approx after how many days, you need to get feedback, the team need to considers the availability of stakeholders who are needed to get the feedback
