One of the questions while PSM I™ Preparation Quiz which I was unable to digest was,
What provides guidance to the Development Team on why it is building the Increment?
- The Sprint Backlog
- The Product Owner
- The Sprint Goal
- The Scrum Master
For this I selected the "The sprint backlog" as appropriate answer but it turned out wrong. Correct answer is "The Sprint Goal" with the explanation as
"The Sprint Goal is an objective set for the Sprint that can be met through the implementation of Product Backlog. It provides guidance to the Development Team on why it is building the Increment."
My question over here is what is the difference between Sprint Backlog and Sprint Goal?
I have tried googling around to understand this but I was unable to get to any conclusion. Please suggest!
