Grasping Agility; Hardening Sprints: A Fat Free Candy!


I wanted to start off this blog with a succinct definition of “Hardening Sprint” so we are all on the same page. I couldn’t find one. I found a lot of words on the Scaled Agile Framework site that talk about and apparently justify Hardening Sprints if you want to read that. I decided to work up a quick definition of a “Hardening Sprint” myself: A pre-planned iteration in which we will do all the things we should be doing all along, but won’t.

After the gathering? I know more, enough that I …
