Scrum has processes like events, sprint planning meeting, daily scrum meeting, end meetings, backlog refinement, scrum of scrums, etc. Sprint is a time-bound effort for complete short slices of work which are one week, two weeks or three week meetings. Sprint is organized through planned meetings for time-bound commitment to finish tasks assigned.

As a follow up to this will be end meetings to review the work that is completed and incomplete planned work. Based on that team members reflect on past sprint and take steps for continuous improvements. The follow up meeting will ends with questions like – what can be achieved in the next sprint. Each sprint result in continuous improvement and as a result there will be better coordination, enhanced productivity and swift completion of tasks.
