Scrum charts The Scrum Process Pack provides two charts that track sprint performance: The velocity chart shows the estimated effort (in story points) delivered across multiple sprints by a release team. This view gives the scrum master an idea of the general capacity of the team over time and allows for more accurate sprint planning. The burndown chart shows the ideal progress of a release or sprint from start to finish compared with the actual daily progress. These measurements help a scrum master to manage the releases and sprints more efficiently from day to day and to head off major issues. A story burndown chart is available. Prerequisites At this stage you should have planned the sprints for a release and completed at least one sprint. You can only view velocity charts for completed sprints. Burndown charts can be use to track sprints in progress or for sprint retrospectives. For a complete list of the tasks required to use the Scrum Process and links to the necessary procedures, see Scrum Process Flow. Display burndown chartsBurndown charts compare expected progress against actual progress for releases and sprints. You can display a burndown chart for any release or sprint.Display team chartsA team velocity chart shows the effort (as points) for a specific team against multiple sprints and multiple releases.Display velocity chartsThe velocity chart can help determine how many points worth of work can be completed per sprint for a given team, if the team composition and sprint duration remain the same.Defect reports in scrumUsers with a special, non-scrum role can create defect reports within the SDLC (Scrum Process) application.
