I have a query regarding the Event's timings for Sprint less than 1 month.

For example, if Sprint is for 2 weeks, then the timings for all the events except for Daily Scrum should be exactly halved? Or it could be that for Sprint Planning we spend 1.5 hours and likewise for other events we can choose any duration which is less than the maximum limit of 1 month for each event?


Best Regards

The Scrum Guide only states 'usually shorter'. You can spend more or less time. Have a conversation with the Scrum team, set a time-box, try it for a few Sprints, and inspect and adapt if necessary.

Focus on the outcomes of each event and encourage the team to estimate how long it will take to achieve them.
