The Sprint Planning Meeting is attended by the Product Owner, Scrum Master, the entire Scrum Team, and any interested
and appropriate management or customer representatives.
During the sprint planning meeting the product owner describes the highest priority features to the team. The team asks
enough questions during this meeting so that they can go off after the meeting and determine which tasks they will move
from the product backlog to the sprint backlog.
Collectively, the Scrum team and the product owner define a sprint goal, which is a short description of what the
sprint will attempt to achieve. The success of the sprint will later be assessed during the Sprint Review Meeting
against the sprint goal, rather than against each specific item selected from the product backlog.
After the sprint planning meeting, the Scrum team meets separately to discuss what they heard and decide how much they
can commit to during the coming sprint. In some cases there will be negotiation with the product owner but it will
always be up to the team to determine how much they can commit to completing.
