Unable to Understand a statement in Scrum Guide
I was just going through the scrum guide and under the sub section Topic Two: How will the chosen work get done? i read the below statement
Work planned for the first days of the Sprint by the Development Team is decomposed by the end of this meeting, often to units of one day or less.
Does it mean that work that will be done at the start of sprint will be discussed at the end of sprint planning? Or what exactly it refers to?
It just means that before the sprint planning is finished the Development Team will have the work for the first days of sprints decomposed to smaller bits - usually one day or less.
They don't have to do this for all the elements taken to the sprint. Elements for later part of the sprint can be decomposed later. So at the end of the meeting team should have some strict vision, plan for the first days reflected by set of really small tasks and some rough vision how other elements will be delivered and how they will achieve the sprint goal.
Why? Because "the Development Team should be able to explain to the Product Owner and Scrum Master how it intends to work as a self-organizing team to accomplish the Sprint Goal and create the anticipated Increment.".
