The Sprint planning meeting occurs at the beginning of each new sprint, with the participation of the product owners, the scrum master and the entire scrum team. During the Sprint planning meeting is determined the amount of work, the list of tasks, the tasks are broken into the subtasks and their implementation is discussed, at this the tasks are estimated in man-hours.
