Increment


“The Increment is the sum of all the Product Backlog items completed during a Sprint and the value of the increments of all previous Sprints.” (1)


Overview

Definition: The increment is the cumulative sum of all the PBIs completed during the Sprint and the value of the increments of all the previous Sprints (pg 49, Scrum Insights for Practitioners)

  • An Increment must be “Done” at the end of a Sprint
  • An Increment is a step towards the product vision
  • An Increment must be usable
  • An Increment is released if decided by the Product Owner

Releasing

Release Size (3, pg 113)

The smallest release you should consider is a new or improved outcome for a single persona. Any smaller the effort to release is not worth it for your customers.
