Planning Day

[plan-ing dey]

Definition of Planning Day

Planning day takes place ‘between’ Sprints, and includes the Sprint Review (broken into the Product and Progress Reviews when necessary), the Retrospective, and Sprint Planning for the next Sprint.


If this assessment usually takes longer than an hour, it is a good reason to split the Planning Day across two Calendar Days, with the Product Review in the afternoon of the first day, Sprint Planning in the morning of the second day, and the Retrospective wherever it fits in between.

There are four types of decisions, one being 'Decide Now'. These are decisions the Team can make and implement immediately, such as a change to a Storyotype’s Definition of Done that will be implemented in Sprint Planning later in the Planning Day.
