Make explicit how many Events there are in Scrum. Is it 4, 5, (or 6 or even 7)?
Please can we make it clearer how many Events there are in Scrum?
Four formal events are listed: (page 5)
- Sprint Planning
- Daily Scrum
- Sprint Review
- Sprint Retrospective
Then another event is defined (page 9)
- The Sprint (although not as an inspect and adapt event)
Then under the same Scrum Events heading (page 10) we meet:
- Cancelling a Sprint (could it be meant to be seen as an Event?)
Then I have read the argument in this area for one other:
- Product Backlog refinement. Here PBIs are "reviewed and revised" (inspection and adaptation)
I believe it is meant to be 5 Events? But it's hard to be definitive.

Does it matter how many they are?
What should be important is their purpose, key outcomes, attendees, scheduling and intended goals.
I tend to see an "event" as something I attend. I'll attend PB refinement, I won't attend a sprint nor will I attend "Cancelling a Sprint". Is that really an "event"...?
