Does your Scrum Team use Sprint Goals? If not, why? Perhaps your team finds it hard to identify a goal for the Sprint out of the patchwork of items on the Sprint Backlog? Or perhaps your Product Owner doesn’t know how to balance the requests from many different groups of stakeholders?

In this episode, we bust one of the most persistent myths in Scrum; the notion that Sprint Goals are optional in Scrum. That they are nice-to-have, but hardly ever practically possible. We will show that the reverse is true. It is very hard, maybe even impossible, to do Scrum well when you don’t have Sprint Goals.

This episode is based on this blog-post (where you can find the other things we reference):
