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.


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.
