Agreement-Based Planning

[uh-gree-muh nt beys plan-ing]

Definition of Agreement-Based Planning

An alternative to capacity-driven methods for sprint planning. With Agreement-Based Planning Product Ownership and the Team work together to add stories to the Sprint, one at a time, until the Team agrees that the Sprint is ‘full’. Things like who is available, technical debt, and the story’s definition of “Done”, are all taken into account, as they impact what the team can and cannot do. (compare to Capacity-Driven Planning)
