What is the sprint planning template?

If you’re part of an Agile software team, particularly if you use Scrum methodology, you’ll need to plan out each sprint. Use this template to define what needs to be done during a sprint and who will be responsible for it.

Benefits of using the sprint planning meeting template

When you use this template, you can plan what your team will deliver by the end of the sprint. As you plan, you’ll create tasks to add to the product backlog and determine which tasks are important and must be your priority.

Documenting all these decisions in the sprint planning meeting template makes the workload transparent. Everyone knows what they’re responsible for and what they need to do, and they know what items are most important. This keeps everyone aligned, especially for hybrid teams that don’t meet or work together in person.
