Burn Down Chart
Burn down chart is a good information Radiator which represents data quickly in a chart format.
A sample burn down chart for a completed sprint, showing remaining effort and tasks for each of the sprint is shown below.
The sprint burn down chart is a publicly displayed chart showing remaining work in the sprint backlog. Updated every day, it gives a simple view of the sprint progress. It also provides quick visualizations for reference.
There are different types of burndown, for example
- The release burndown chart that shows the amount of work left to complete the target commitment for a Product Release (normally spanning through multiple sprints) and the alternative release burndown chart, which basically does the same, but clearly shows scope changes to Release Content, by resetting the baseline.
- The Sprint burndown chart that shows the amount of work left in a Sprint to achieve a Sprint goal
- A Risk Burndown Chart which shows the amount of Risk impact pending at this point in time.
