Definition of “Done” and the Sprint Product1:39 with Matt Anthes-Washburn
Effective agile teams have clear standing agreements regarding how they will work together. Part of this is the artifact known as the definition of “done.”
Definition of Done
- Tasks are complete
- Code is reviewed
- Item is tested
- Reviewed with stakeholders
- Product Owner reviews Conditions of Acceptance
Liftoff: Launching Agile Teams & Projects, Diana Larsen and Ainsley Nies
Effective agile teams have clear standing agreements regarding
how they will work together.
Part of this is the artifact known as the definition of done.
In the definition of done, a team decides on a list of the things that
must occur for a backlog item to be considered done.
This can include the completion of tasks, code review, testing,
review with stakeholders, product owner acceptance, and
anything else the team agrees to include in their process.
To make sure that when they see an item is done, it really is so.
One thing I found is that periodically,
a team will find a need to review their definition of done.
A common warning sign occurs when the backlog starts to fill with defects
related to work that was recently completed.
Sometimes a team is so focused on accomplishing a sprint and
moving on, that they start to loosen up on their definition of done.
It's helpful to keep the definition of done in a visible place where everyone can
refer to it, especially as they are reviewing the work on a backlog item and
deciding if it is ready.
If a team is having a hard time meeting their definition of done,
they may want to try taking on a little less in the next sprint.
Along with making a renewed commitment to the definition of done.
Work that is done is also included in the sprint product.
The sprint product is the working software the team produces each sprint and
only includes the items that are done.
Stakeholders see a demo of the sprint product during sprint review, and
it is usually distributed either to an internal audience or to customers.
