Topic Overview:  The Definition of Done

Defining “done” is key to any successful SCRUM team. Many teams struggle to effectively define when a story is “done”, create a shared understanding of “done” and complete a work item to the point of being “done”. During this interactive presentation, Derek will explore:

  • How teams define “done”
  • How to create a shared understanding of “done”
  • How quality, constraints and stakeholder requests fit into “done”
  • How estimates and tasks change because of “done”

Plan to participate in group activities that will showcase typical problems that teams face when defining “done” as well as tips and tricks to leverage the definition of “done” to maximize your team’s performance.
