A Burndown Chart is defined in Agile Project Management with Scrum by Ken Schwaber as a chart that shows the amount of work remaining across time. It is a great visual reference for the correlation between the amount of work remaining and the progress of the project Team in reducing this work.
Example of use:
- · “Check the Burndown Chart to see if we are on target for completion.”
- · Agile Project Management with Scrum by Ken Schwaber and Mike Beedle
