Who can cancel a Sprint if the Sprint Goal becomes outdated?
Who can terminate a Sprint if the Sprint Goal becomes obsolete?
- The project sponsor
- The Development Team
- The stakeholders
- The Product Owner
In Scrum, the authority to terminate a Sprint if the Sprint Goal becomes obsolete typically resides with The Product Owner, in consultation with the Scrum Team. The Product Owner is responsible for managing the Product Backlog and ensuring that the work being done aligns with the project’s goals and provides value to the stakeholders. If it becomes evident during the Sprint that the Sprint Goal is no longer achievable or aligned with the project’s objectives, the Product Owner, in collaboration with the Scrum Team, can decide to terminate the Sprint and reevaluate the goals and priorities.
