A sprint is the basic unit of development in Scrum. The sprint is a “timeboxed” effort, i.e. it is restricted to a specific duration. The duration is fixed in advance for each sprint and is normally between one week and one month.

Each sprint is preceded by a planning meeting, where the tasks for the sprint are identified and an estimated commitment for the sprint goal is made, and followed by a review or retrospective meeting, where the progress is reviewed and lessons for the next sprint are identified.

Definition of "Sprint" by Chat GPT: In the context of agile project management, a sprint refers to a short, time-boxed period during which a development team works to complete a set amount of work. Sprints typically last between one to four weeks, and at the end of each sprint, the team delivers a potentially shippable product increment. Sprint planning, daily stand-up meetings, and sprint review are common activities that take place during a sprint.
