A sprint is defined as a limited period of time in which a number of features are created and added to an application or system. A sprint starts with a formal startup event and usually ends with a demonstration of what has been created in the sprint. What are the benefits of sprints?
Most articles quote “focus” as the main benefit of a sprint. I don’t see how sprints create focus, or how this “focus” helps the project. A project methodology should help create a product of higher quality with more features at lower cost. I don’t see how sprints contribute to this.
