Creating a Program Increment

A Program Increment is a collection of Sprints.

When creating a new Program Increment, you will be presented with the following Create an Increment screen:




To create a new Program Increment:

  1. Give your Increment a Name
  2. Objectives: What are the main objectives of this Program Increment that you want to communicate to your teams? What are the teams intended to achieve in this fixed Increment timebox?
  3. Start Date: When does this Program Increment start?
  4. Sprint Length: Are your Sprints 1 or 2 weeks in length?
  5. Sprint Count: Are there 5 or 6 Sprints in your Increment?
  6. Sprint Source:
    • do you want all of the teams in your Program Increment to share the same sprints? If so, what board do those global sprints live on/should be created on? or

    • do you want all of the teams in your Program Increment to manage their own sprints which live on their agile board in Jira?
