The Sprint Burn Down Chart is a graphical tool which is used to represent the amount of completed work done against the expected rate of completion for the present iteration. It enhances transparency of the current performance of the burndown chart. It also enables us to estimate whether the Sprint target can be delivered in a fixed time or not. If the work is not done within that time then the team members have to determine how to increase the speed of the remaining work to be done.
The “velocity” is nothing but the measure of the total amount of work done by a team in a Sprint. We calculate the velocity by totaling the points for all completed user stories. The partial counting of completed work is strictly prohibited. The sprint burndown chart report is constructed from the data in the Analysis Services cube, and the team references the WIT data store in real life.
The Burndown Chart shows an inclined view of task progression and the very important common measure of Sprint progress. This chart is used for multiple reasons. Here are some of them listed below :-
The chart can help in answering the following questions:
Corrective Measures- Since the Sprint Burn Down Chart gives real-time data regarding the work progress, therefore, it enables us to take corrective measures before it is too late.
Now let us have a look at the Sprint Burn Down Chart itself.
If more work is remaining than what was expected then it is time to buckle up and increase the efforts. If less work is remaining than what was expected, then you are probably going to finish all the tasks earlier than expected. You must have overestimated the required efforts and you should do proper estimation for the next time.
These are the advantages of Sprint Burndown Chart that increases our progress in a clear view.
