In this paper an approach to support Sprint Planning in Scrum projects is discussed. This approach allows the automatic determination of the optimal set of tasks for a given sprint, as well as its execution flow, considering the a priori information concerning the current state of the project, tasks’s difficulty and importance, and the relations between tasks. The proposed solution is based on the representation of the project decision space, defined by this information, as workflow models. To evaluate the approach, a prototype has been developed and is being assessed in the context of the Cornea Notification and Collecting Information System (Sincap) project. The results suggest that the use of the approach provides greater determinism for the sprint planning process, easies the viewing and evaluation of project scenarios and decreases planning time.
