Using Burndown Charts Course in Singapore
A burndown chart is a visual representation in graph form of work left to do against the time left to do it in. The concept was initially introduced in 2000 by Ken Schwaber, a software developer, product manager, and industry consultant. It is extensively applied in Scrum Agile development.
The methodology and practice based on the value and principle expressed in the Agile Manifesto is defined as Agile. These include things like collaboration, self-organization, and cross-functionality of teams. Scrum is a subset of Agile. It is a framework that is used to implement Agile development.
The chart itself is a large graph relating the quantity of work remaining (backlog) on the vertical axis and the time expired since the start of the project on the horizontal axis. Future and past time are also shown as well. This makes up an “information radiator.” A general term for any display that is either written, drawn, printed or created electronically and placed in a highly visible location. As tasks are completed, the graph clears out to zero.
The burndown chart is put together from the sprint – a predetermined timeframe within which the team completes sets of tasks from the backlog – backlog and illustrates progress made toward the sprint forecast. They are used to predict a project team’s likelihood of finishing their work in the time available. They’re also great for helping the project team stay within scope and know when they are beginning to drift from it.
The charts are always displayed somewhere on a wall of the project room. Their visibility encourages project team members to continually evaluate their performance daily and confront any difficulties sooner and more decisively. It also helps them work more effectively to achieve the project’s deliverables.
