Plan of Action

[plan uhv, ov ak-shuh n]

Definition of Plan of Action

A tentative plan, developed by the Team, of how the Sprint might be carried out. The purpose of the Plan of Action is not to have a plan, per se, but to enable the Team to justify to itself that doing the work is possible.

Examples

The Team may need to task out the Stories in order to have a more fine-grained Plan of Action.
It could include a detailed Plan of Action about how the Team will actually get all the work Done – including this new Story – but it doesn’t have to.
