Hi There,

I have a question about the inputs related to sprint planning. According to the scrum guide, there are 4 inputs for this event: Product Backlog, the latest product Increment, projected capacity of the Development Team during the Sprint, and past performance of the Development Team.

However I have read from some links and tutorials on internet, and even on the official class from scrum.org that there are 2 more others items composing the inputs, beyond the 4 listed above: The Definition of Done and Restrospective Commitments.

I will be very thankful if someone could explain what is the correct and official approach.

You're reading the part of the Guide which covers Topic 1 of Sprint Planning.

Topic 2 addresses the crafting of a Sprint Backlog, for which both "Done" and Retrospective actions ought to constitute inputs.

I think this is just a consideration in sprint planning, there is no need to require complete input
