Scrum release planning isn’t part of the original processes or meetings in the Scrum Guide. Since the focus of Scrum is on shorter sprints, some teams work without release planning at all. Instead, they just release the product increment.
Is release planning required in Scrum?
As Scrum no longer requires release planning, it makes no sense to require a release burndown. Scrum strives to make the process of software development and delivery transparent. A burndown can be incredibly useful in supporting this. But, there may be other ways to achieve this same objective.
WHO plans release schedules in Scrum?
Step 2: Rank the product backlog
During this step, the product manager should outline a basic Scrum release plan or roadmap that includes the release goal, release target date, and the ranked user stories.
Who attends release planning?
For smaller teams, the complete cross-functional Delivery Team should attend for both input and accountability purposes. However, for larger teams, a subset of team members may be elected to represent the Team for release planning.
Whats a release plan?
Definition: A release plan is a tactical document designed to capture and track the features planned for an upcoming release. A release plan usually spans only a few months and is typically an internal working document for product and development teams.
How many sprints in a release?
Sprints are short iterations (two or three weeks long) in which required functionalities need to be developed and the next product increment should be ready at the end of the sprint. Product owners plan however larger versions, releases. They require more time and therefore release typically integrates 3-4 sprints.
