– Я ошиблась.  – Она сдвинула брови, задумавшись, почему ТРАНСТЕКСТ за весь день не взломал ни единого шифра.  – Позволь мне кое-что проверить, – сказала она, перелистывая отчет. Найдя то, что искала, Мидж пробежала глазами цифры и минуту спустя кивнула: – Ты прав, Чед.

ТРАНСТЕКСТ работал на полную мощность.

 
 

 

Motivation for Sprint Zero in a software project – Common sprint zero pitfalls

One common consequence of teams that do not deeply understand Scrum and the nature of its events is that they believe it is possible to run sprints which do not produce a Done and releasable increment of the product. A Sprint Goal is always to produce a Done increment. Why is that? A Sprint is based on the empirical process control theory to optimize the predictability and the risk control of the development activities.

The three pillars of this theory are transparency, inspection and adaption. Inspecting the outcome of the Sprint unveils possible improvements to both the product and how the team worked. That inspection allows adapting the course of the development regarding the product, the team and its environment. Therefore, Sprints not designed to produce a Done increment undermine the empiricism of the development and do not meet the basics of Scrum. A Sprint 0 is the name often given to a short effort to create a vision and a rough product backlog which allows creating an estimation of a product release.

There is nothing bad in doing that as long as everyone concerned has clear that the plan is subject to change as more is known as a result of the inspection of the sprints outcome. To sum up, that activity does not meet the definition of a Sprint in Scrum, so it is better not to call it so. Again, doing a lightweight functional and architectural design as a part of the product vision can be helpful to avoid risks and put all stakeholders on the same page, but do not create a detailed and final design.

A Hardening Sprint is to me the most worrying interpretation of what a Sprint could be. This concept was widespread by a popular scaling framework that partially changed their mind about this in its last version. A Hardening Sprint goal is achieving a releasable and integrated increment that essentially could not be achieved before. That means that it is accepted that sprints can create undone increments, so the ability of teams to create transparency, inspect and adapt are seriously jeopardized, and therefore, no real sprints are being performed.
