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.
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.
