Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating nonfeature tasks for sprints, part of Agile Project Management with Microsoft Project.
- Like releases, sprints also have brief planning…and wrap-up tasks.…And they're also linked and scheduled…like traditionally scheduled tasks.…In Project you can copy the tasks from your first sprint…to set up additional sprints.…In this project I've already set up the planning…and wrap-up tasks for Sprint 1,…just so we don't have to create them.…The planning begins with the owner selecting…the features for the sprint…and defining the spring vision,…that is what the team intends to accomplish in this sprint.…
The other thing you do in this task…is validate the sprint capacity.…What is the team's expected velocity?…And can they get the selected features done in this sprint?…After that the team decides who…is going to work on which features.…These tasks are really short.…In this project, sprint planning is only half a day.…Sprint execution begins with two tasks…that last the duration of the sprint work,…that's nine days.…It's the 10 days of the sprint,…minus the day that you use for planning,…as well as wrap-up.…
Daily scrum is the task for the short daily meetings…
