Have you ever been grocery shopping, bought lots of great items, and then returned home only to realized that you didn’t actually get any of the things you needed? This is exactly what happens to Scrum teams when they go into a Sprint without a Sprint Goal. The Sprint Goal allows the Scrum team to go into the Sprint knowing what they want to accomplish so they can focus on value.

At your next Sprint Planning meeting, make sure you’re asking the question, “What’s the goal for this Sprint?” Then, at every Daily Scrum during the Sprint, make sure you’re focused on that Sprint Goal!
