? Biweekly Sprint Retrospective - All team members discuss how the previous sprint went, what challenges occurred and actions for the next sprint are defined. The contractor will also provide their input in the discussion. After that, the contractor works iteratively on their tasks.
? Biweekly Sprint Planning - Product Owner and the Development Team define what will be the tasks for the next sprint, based on the availability, priorities, and user feedback. After that, the contractor works iteratively on their tasks.
All tasks and results will be documented in Jira/Confluence.
