Sprint

n.

Pronunciation

/sprɪnt/

Definition

Short software development period with specifically planned goals to accomplish.

Multiple concurrent sprints occur over the duration of a large-scale Agile software development cycle. Each sprint is planned with specific goals to be handled by smaller breakout teams. Each team works to complete their development goals as part of the larger overall project over the course of a typically two-week sprint. The scope of each sprint’s goal should not change in the duration of the sprint, but the proceeding sprints can be flexible if a previous sprint’s goals have not fully been completed.
