Actually I would expect that the team should determine the level of detail
that they need in order to organize themselves and meet the Sprint target.
Whether they need a few lines on a white board or a 200 task Microsoft
Project plan should be up to them.
At the very least I would recommend an understanding of who does what, what
do they need from others to do their work (inputs), and a clear
understanding of 'done' (outputs). Once again that can take many forms...

Currently my team is struggling with the level of
detail to capture in a plan for the Sprint. Does
anyone have an example of an entire Sprint project
plan in either excel or project? I would appreciate
if I could get some insight into the level of detail
that was captured. Thanks
