Ready…Set…Done! Exploring Definition of Ready and Definition of Done
Most of us have experienced painful Sprint planning meetings. The meeting is painful because no one understands the requirements, or they are not yet prioritized, or they are barely written with no acceptance criteria. How does your team know when your product backlog items/user stories/requirements are ready to be brought into Sprint planning and ready to be worked on?
Then, once the item is done, how do we know if it’s really done? If a team member walks up to you and says, “This item is done”, what does that really mean? Does it mean it works on their machine? Does it mean it’s been thoroughly tested and peer reviewed? Does it mean legal and security have looked at it?
In this session we will explore the concepts of Definition of Ready, which creates a checklist so that we know when a user story is ready to be started. We will explore Definition of Done, a checklist to help us understand what it really means to be done.
