Business leaders, product owners, scrum masters, and teams following agile software development

One key aspect of project management is to monitor the health of the project. By tracking progress, teams can learn from sprints and improve continuously. Usually, it is a daunting task to track progress and requires in-depth knowledge of tools & workflows. Instead of drowning in the details, this paper explains the key four parameters that can not only indicate project health visually but also point out issues.

  • Burndown chart
  • Velocity chart
  • Cumulative flow diagram
  • Control chart
