During the Build Phase, the team works in short iterations, called Sprints, where a functional increment of the application is defined, configured and validated. During each iteration, the team follows a Scrum-based process where they commit to delivering a subset of the product backlog, taking each requirement through the development lifecycle.

The goals of this phase are:

  • Agile Planning - use just-in-time requirement discovery and iterative planning cycles in order to adapt the release plan to new information
  • Disciplined Development - follow a test driven development process with quality built-in
  • Inspect and Adapt - ensure frequent communication amongst the team, making progress transparent and continuously removing impediments


The build phase is typically conducted in 2 weeks iterations.
