How many action items should you aim to complete in each sprint cycle?

  • Start at the top of the prioritized wish list and select as many action items as you can complete based on the effort required by each item and the team’s capacity.
  • First complete any items your CEO mandates. Then use the remaining time to complete any action items, updates, or maintenance items.
  • The general rule is to complete a minimum of five action items per sprint to continue the momentum.
  • The number of action items you complete will depend on how busy you are with other work. The slower you are, the more action items you can complete.
