Sprint Burnup Chart / Report
A Sprint Burnup Chart or Report is a tool used in Scrum and Agile software development methodologies to track the progress of work during a sprint. It is similar to a Sprint Burndown Chart, but instead of showing the remaining work, it shows the amount of work completed over time. The chart or report is updated daily, typically during the daily stand-up meeting, to show the progress of the team towards completing the work for the sprint.
The x-axis of the chart or report represents the days of the sprint, and the y-axis represents the amount of work completed. Each day, the team updates the chart or report to show the amount of work completed. As the team completes work, the line on the chart should trend upward, indicating that the team is making progress towards completing the work for the sprint.
Here’s a detailed calculation for creating a Sprint Burnup Chart:
- Identify the total amount of work for the sprint in hours or points. This is typically represented on the y-axis of the chart.
- On the first day of the sprint, the total amount of work is plotted on the chart and set to zero on the x-axis
- On subsequent days, the team updates the chart to reflect the completed work. This is typically done by adding the completed work to the total amount of work.
- The chart is updated daily and plotted on the x-axis by the days of the sprint.
- The ideal trend line is a diagonal line that starts at zero on the first day of the sprint and ends at the total amount of work on the last day of the sprint, indicating that the team completed all the work for the sprint.
- If the actual trend line deviates from the ideal trend line, it indicates that the team is not on track to complete the work for the sprint on time, and it’s necessary to take action to get back on track.
The Sprint Burnup Chart or Report can be created using a spreadsheet software, and it’s common to use a line chart to display the data. The chart can be shared with team members, stakeholders, and management to give them visibility into the progress of the sprint and to identify any issues or obstacles that may be preventing the team from completing the work on time.
It’s important to note that some teams prefer using a burnup chart over a burndown chart, it depends on the team preference and what they want to track and measure.
