Sprint Zero

[sprint zeer-oh]

Definition of Sprint Zero

A deprecated synonym for Startup Sprint.


The term "Sprint Zero" was never widely accepted and often enables bad habits. It leads Teams to believe they do not need to show working product at the end of every sprint and leads to the very behavioral pattern that Scrum was designed to counteract. Calling it Sprint Zero is not recommended.
