Any discussion of planning can lead you to believe that the plan is the end rather than the means to that end. Not true. We plan for many reasons.

  1. We plan so that we visualize attaining a goal.
  2. We plan so that we anticipate the path toward the goal.
  3. We plan together so we create a common vision.
  4. We plan just enough so that change does not destroy us.
  5. We plan so that others can be confident in us.
  6. We plan so that we can motivate each other.
  7. We plan so the we can hold each other accountable.
  8. We plan so that we can understand our capacity to deliver.
  9. We plan so we can talk about what we can deliver.
  10. We plan because the perception of random action generally causes panic in the management ranks.

Sprint planning is a tool to help Agile teams develop a map forward towards the real goal of software development – the delivery of value. We have to refine that map as we gain experience and learn every daily, every sprint and every release.
