When should a sprint end?
- We have consumed all the work we said we would in our sprint planning
- All of the work has been completed.
- Both the team and the product owner agree it should end.
- The amount of time specified for the sprint has run out
Comment: Set a time-box and stick to it. Failing to adhere to the time boxes for your sprint is a bad
habit. Without time-boxes we rapidly loose our sense of predictability and the amount of complexity we tackle in each bite drifts upward. Teams become fragmented and loose cohesion. This is a strong rule but, by no means an absolute. Be smart when you vary your timebox and you really need a disciplined experience well formed team to carry this off.
