Burndown & Velocity

Burndown & Velocity

Burndown Chart

The Scrum Burndown Chart is a visual measurement tool that shows the completed work per day against the projected rate of completion for the current project release. Its purpose is to enable that the project is on the track to deliver the expected solution within the desired schedule.



The rate of progress of a Scrum Team is called "velocity". It expresses the amount of e.g. story points completed per iteration. After a few Sprints the velocity of a Scrum Team will most likely be predictable and would allow quite accurate estimation about the time needed until all entries in the Scrum Product Backlog will be completed.

Velocity Average


The velocity bar helps you planning the next sprint. In Sprint planning you see the average of your team and how many story points are planned in the next Sprint.
