Scrum charts

The Scrum Process Pack provides 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 burn down 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 burn down 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. You can use burn down charts 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.
