What is a sprint?

A Sprint is a timeboxed session in which teams plan, execute and evaluate its goals. We use sprints because we believe in the Think Big, Start Small, Act Fast philosophy. During the Global Goals Jam sprints last for 3 to 4 hours. The entire Jam contains 4 sprints in total that takes jammers from research to brainstorm, to prototype, to testing and sharing.
