The Sprint Goal, the often misunderstood and forgotten key to scrum.

  • May 7, 2013 · 5:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

A lot of scrum training either leaves it out or mentions very briefly. No tools, that I've seen, have any mention of it. Most teams don't use it or if they do it can often be as bad as 'Finish all the stories'. So why is the sprint goal there, is it any use?


Working with a sprint goal is a powerful agile practice. Come along to find out what exactly is the sprint goal, what the benefits of using it properly are and how to write effective goals.

    Thanks to Atlassian, Stuart and Rowan for organising this meetup, and to all who shared their insights into the sprint goal. Got some great take aways from the discussions.

    Here is the link to Dave's cool video about how the goal can really tie everything together.
