Sprint Burndown

Sense and Adapt to developments within the sprint

By showing both the task burndown and the story burndown we help the team see the two key aspects of their sprint work. Are they on track from a task POV - and are they completing stories early enough in the sprint. 

 

Are we on track? Is this a mini-waterfall? 

The task burndown (1) runs of the left axis whilst the Story burndown (2) is shown on the right axis. 

This shows a typical though unhealthy pattern in teams - namely, only completing stories on the last day - a form of 'mini-waterfall'.
