The First Sprint

We are in the middle of the first sprint in my project since Scrum was introduced as development method. This is my first experience acting as ScrumMaster and I will try to share some of my thoughts as we go.

Just as everybody else that are using Scrum, we are using a slightly modified version. But that is, as I see it, one of the great advantages of agile methods.
Main differences from mainstream Scrum are:
– Sprint length is set to three week iterations rather than 30 days
– “Done” is defined as ready for system test rather than production ready
– Sprint planning was done over a couple of days rather than in a one day sprint meeting. The actual sprint planning meeting was kept short (1 hour)

Apart from this, we are doing it mostly by the book.
