#147 – Sprint 0

As we learned on the previous page, there should be one or more ‘done’ Increments at the end of a Sprint. Therefore, there’s nothing called Sprint 0 where the Scrum Team can ignore the rules of the game of Scrum.

If you need some time before beginning product development to create a vision, initial discovery and build up a rough Product Backlog, then feel free to do it, but just don’t call it a Sprint (or Scrum).
