Must I go to production every sprint? The result of every sprint is an increment which is potentially shippable software. Potentially shippable or releasable does not mean that it needs to be released. Whether the software will actually be released to the customer is a business decision. So the answer to this question is no, you don't have to go to production every sprint and Agile and the Scrum Framework do not have a requirement that you do. They do however enable the business to deploy the changes as they need and that can be every sprint if needed. There are practices such as continuous delivery and continuous deployment, which prescribe often and continuous implementation of releases but the ultimate decision for that lies in the business and may be additionally driven by the nature of the market and external business dates.
