Sprints are built around a release and go iteration by iteration, they have goals, they have plans and they have a direction.

But sometimes you need a much more focused sprint, around a problem, around an initiative, where it’s not just about the user stories and the tasks to be done, it’s about what you need to accomplish.

The focused sprint isn’t about the release and the delivery, it’s about the thing you need to get done at that point in time.  When you’re running a focused sprint, there are no extra tickets brought into the mix, everything is pushed out until the focused items are complete and only when they are done, are they pulled back in.
