Sprint goal is the stakeholder commitment for a sprint.

It defines an outcome but not the approach to get there. This goal is set during sprint planning 8E1B2 in response to product owner’s 8E1E1 desired value increase, which should create a coherent and singular focus for the team. The goal should refrain from changing, even if scope is adjusted as result of new information uncovered during the sprint. Commitment of the sprint backlog 8E1C2.
