Sprint Planning is considered the main event in a Sprint, in which the Scrum Team sets their Sprint Backlog. This Backlog determines the final objective of the Sprint. Obviously, the Scrum Team could fall into many pitfalls during this event.
First of all, timeboxing this event sound like an easy thing to many Scrum trainees or even experts. Therefore, the Scrum Team could have a bad time dealing with a tough plan. Regardless of the Scrum Team skills, they could end up oversetting timeboxes.
