Creating Increments in Sprints and releasing are different things!

January 13, 2022
There is often confusion in what happens in a Sprint with regards to the Increment and releasing. Short summary of this article: during a Sprint, one or more increments are produced. This happens when a Product Backlog Item meets the definition of "Done". At least once every Sprint, but it can happen more often. When a Product Backlog Item meets the definition of "Done" (and therefor becomes an increment), it can be released. Releasing can be done at any moment in time!
