Scrum related questions

Postby rahulpk Wed Feb 26, 2014 3:25 am

Hi Saket,

1. When a new project gets started and the business/ Client hires the PO for the project. Does the sprint zero start immediately? When does the self organizing team get hired?
2. Do we create product backlog in the sprint zero?
3. If we plan for 2 weeks sprints, do we keep the sprint zero as one week?

Saket :
We do not get these answers in scrum since the term iteration zero is not found in scrum reference material, but yes in agile project management framework (APMF) whatever we do before explore phase falls under Iteration zero, so if you have started the project but not yet started the iteration 1 , it is zero... you can think like time between Project charter to Sprint Planning Meeting of first iteration.

2. Do we create product backlog in the sprint zero?
Saket :
Yes we create product backlog , we conduct User Stories Writing workshops , we do Release Planning , Training , Top Level Architecture design in Iteration Zero.

3. If we plan for 2 weeks sprints, do we keep the sprint zero as one week?

Saket :
No guideline , it has more to do with how much uncertain environment you have and what you need before you start iteration zero, the recommendation is keep it as short as possible.
