Sprint planning: Planning for a productive sprint with maximum yield

Maximum output thanks to optimal sprint planning

In order to make the best use of the short timeframe and to focus on the tasks that are important and bring real results, the sprint must be planned. 

At the beginning, the product owner transfers the initial overall requirements of the project into the Product Backlog. This list shows all the requirements (EPICS, higher-level user stories, user stories) that you and your target group have for the project.

The fastest way to reach the project goal: sprint backlog

The Product Owner’s list (Product Backlog) is reviewed by the team, and they decide which requirements should be implemented and how in the next sprint. The sprint backlog is a list of tasks to be executed by the Scrum Team in the upcoming sprint. 

During the sprint, progress is displayed on a Scrumboard to indicate the status of User Stories in the backlog and associated risks. 

New tasks are not added after planning is completed, but are added to the product backlog and completed in a subsequent sprint.

Once the planning process is complete, the development team and product owner jointly set a fixed Sprint Goal. For example (Epic): 

Increase visibility by 25 per cent and increase conversion to 5 per cent by creating 3 SEO-optimized landing pages with added value for the user.  

Using the sprint backlog to quickly reach the project goal - Agile SEO
User Stories help find solutions in agile project management.

The right solution for every requirement: User Stories

The sprint backlog can again be divided into different EPICs and user stories, which define a requirement for the result. As a “role”, I want “functionality” to be there to achieve the “goal”. For example: 

As a local craft business, I want keywords to be identified where optimization is worthwhile to generate more visibility. Based on this, three landing pages can be planned and created.

The “Effort Estimated Task List” is derived from this User Story. This shows all the tasks associated with the User Stories contained in a sprint. For example: 

Keyword research, target group analysis, search intent, funnel calculation…

Effort Estimation provides a common view of the user stories, and the information gathered is used to determine the sprint pace. For example: 

How much time does it take to identify attractive keywords? 

In the sprint planning meeting, team members select the tasks they want to work on in the sprint – based on experience and expertise – from the list of Estimated Efforts. 

Product Owner in the planning process

You are represented by our Product Owner, who ensures both your explicit and implicit needs and requirements are included in the prioritised Product Backlog in the form of the User Stories and flow into the Sprint Backlogs.

  • Definition of the overall requirements 
  • Representation of the product users and customer interests
  • Coordination of resources (manpower & financial)
  • Focus on value creation and ROI
  • Assessment of feasibility
Product Owner ensures agile execution of tasks

Daily Scrum: deliver performance, measure performance, & improve performance.

Achieving optimal agile performance with daily scrums.

For the best possible internal and external communication, the Daily Standup Meeting takes place every day from the beginning of the Sprint. This takes 15 minutes a day and promotes exchange, productivity, and efficiency because: 

  • Other (individual) meetings are avoided 
  • Problems are quickly identified and solved together
  • Important decisions are made and reviewed daily 
  • Team members learn something new every day 
  • Progress is documented on a daily basis – Transparency increases motivation 
  • Adjustments are made according to progress and project goals

Work in a 24-hour rhythm:

The standup meeting lasts no longer than 15 minutes and is designed for each team member to answer three questions:

  1. What did I do yesterday? 
  2. What will I do today? 
  3. Are there challenges, and can the team help me with them?


For example:

Is the copywriting for a landing page complete so that team member 1 can do quality assurance while the content creator can start on the next landing page based on team member 2’s research? How should the copywriter deal with the challenge of ensuring that there is as little duplication with landing page 1 as possible on the second landing page – what does the person responsible for keyword analysis say? 

This information is used to update the Sprint Burndown Chart and Scrumboard at the end of each day. This helps the people involved to always keep an eye on the achievement of the project goal and to maintain focus.

Keeping up to date with the help of standup meetings
Scrum Masters motivate and organise agile teams

Organiser and motivator: Scrum Master

The goal is to be concise and focus on the most important things. In-depth discussions between the Scrum Master and the Team or within the Scrum Team should be held after the meeting. 

To ensure that the Daily Scrum takes place at the same time and place every day, the Scrum Master organises the meetings. An exchange of content is only planned between the team members. The Scrum Master ensures that the 15-minute limit is adhered to and intervenes when necessary. 

Sprint Review: Collect, review and release results

Collect results transparently and significantly shorten the time to market with an acceptance date in order to move forward faster while maintaining high quality.

At the end of the sprint, the results are presented to you/the product owner and their stakeholders. Individual criteria (acceptance criteria) are used to check whether the requirements of the processed User Stories have been completely covered:

Were the keywords that can greatly increase your visibility found and, based on this, was a plan developed that meets the needs of your target group and the SEO requirements? 

The participants reflect on the cycle and have the opportunity to give direct feedback on what can be included in the product backlog for one of the subsequent sprints. 

The meeting is led by the Scrum Master and usually lasts a few hours – depending on the scope of the sprint. 

  • Participants: Scrum Team, Scrum Master, Product Owner + customers and other stakeholders if applicable
  • Comparison between Product Backlog and Sprint Backlog 
  • Team reports on the content of the sprint
  • Questions are answered by the team member responsible
Transparently capture and review agile SEO results in the Sprint Review.

Sprint Retrospective: Optimizing the process at its heart - instant improvement

Analyse sprints regularly and optimize agile processes

Analysis of the sprint ensures that the next sprint will be even better, more effective and more efficient. 

All participants take part in this meeting, and it is chaired or moderated by the Scrum Master. 

The central task is to find out where there is still potential for optimization through an open exchange and discussion:

  • Things the team needs to start with: Process improvement
  • Things the team needs to maintain: Best Practice
  • Things the team needs to turn off: Problems in the process

Based on all the findings, the team agrees on as many aspects as possible and includes them in the planning and implementation of the next sprint. 

In-process learning: product backlog expansion

Insights from the sprint are also used meaningfully at the highest level – the product backlog. 

The Product Owner determines the value of the remaining User Stories and prioritises them accordingly. In addition to the value, possible risks and dependencies of User Stories also play an important role in the prioritisation. 

In a prioritised Product Backlog review, you ensure that the User Stories and acceptance criteria:

  • are understood and tracked by all members of the Scrum Team. 
  • reflect the actual requirements and priorities of the stakeholders.
  • are optimally developed for the team to work with. 
  • have been discarded if they are irrelevant. 
  • contain all approved change requests. 

In this way, the backlog is updated after each sprint – by new User Stories, new change requests, new and identified risks, updated User Stories or changed prioritisation.

Findings from sprints are recorded and used in the product backlog
