Its about Scrum Events! Please Clarify.
I am going through the scrum guide and came across few statements which i found difficult to understand. kindly throw some light to bring out their actual relevance:
1: Scrum says there are four formal events to inspect and adapt and few of them like Daily Scrum,Sprint Review are informal meetings.
2: Scrum says "Sprint contains and consists of the Sprint Planning , Daily Scrums, the development work, the sprint review and the sprint retrospective". so does it mean if timebox for a sprint is 1 month(30 calendar days) then all sprint events will be covered within these 30 days only. or events like Sprint review and Sprint retrospective will take place after 1 month (timebox of Sprint ).
Also will phases like testing, UAT, release deployment be done within timebox of a Sprint(30 days here).?
Yes, all those events are part of a Sprint. The next Sprint follows immediately after, so it will have the same events again. About including the activities you mentioned: The Scrum Guide states that each Sprint should produce a potentially shippable increment. That is a piece of valuable (working, usable, useful) software, which is in a state that allows the Product Owner to release it to users with no or minimal addditional effort. It is up to the team to decide which of the activities you mentioned should therefore be part of every Sprint.
With that in mind, what do you think should be included in your case?
Thanks Christian for valuable inputs. As per my understanding, activities like testing, UAT, release deployment are part of every sprint which development team delivers. also all formal events are covered within timebox of individual sprints.no extra time alloted to conduct them separately. right?
