What is a Sprint meeting – a brief description

There are several different types of Sprint meetings, with the most common definition stating that there are 3 types of meetings:
Sprint Planning
Sprint Review
Sprint Retrospective
The reason / meanings of these meetings are pretty clear in their nomenclature itself, but let us provide a bit more detail.

Sprint Planning: A Sprint Planning meeting is held to detail out what needs to be done in the next Sprint. The team meets, reviews the prioritized Product Backlog, and then selects the work that will be done for the current Sprint. These are then translated into the Sprint Backlog for the current Sprint cycle. The Sprint Planning meeting is meant to happen at the beginning of a Sprint cycle, and sets the ground for whatever will happen in the ongoing Sprint cycle.

Sprint Review: The Sprint Review meeting is meant to happen at the end of the Sprint cycle, and is supposed to review whatever work got accomplished during the Sprint cycle. For the work that was completed, it needs to be presented to the stakeholders while the work that did not get completed is reviewed (since it cannot be demonstrated).

Sprint Retrospective: As the term states, a retrospective is a review of the processes and work followed in the previous Sprint. The Sprint retrospective is meant to happen at the end of the Sprint cycle. This is like a post-mortem for the previous Sprint, and helps in reviewing and understanding what went right and what went wrong in the Sprint. It is on the basis of this regular discussion and implementation of the steps that help in improving the Scrum process.
