Types of Burndown Graph

In Yodiz we are showing two different burndown graph

a) Userstory Burndown

This graphs is meant for product owners or other managers who are only interested in user story level of progress. Assuming the total effort estimate in terms of story points on hours is 100 in a given sprint, so as a product owner I am only interested in knowing how many user stories have been done or what is the amount of work still my sprint needed to be done in order to finish all the user stories.

b) Issue & Task Burndown

This graph is meant for scrum masters or team members who are interested in more granular info on sprint progress. Task and issue info are shown in following basis

  • Effort Spent
  • Effort Remaining
  • Effort Estimated

Interpreting this Report

Yodiz Burndown Graph represents the following:

  • X axis display the working days
  • Y axis to display remaining effort
    • Ideal effort as a guideline/projection in Blue
      • This line shows the amount of work should be completed daily in an “ideal” scenario.
    • Real progress of effort in Red
      • Shows the the sum of “Effort Remaining”.
      • Each point on the line is the sum of the work “TO BE COMPETED” on that date.

The blue line in the graph is drawn based up the effort estimated for items. As the effort estimated keeps changing, the blue line keeps changing over time. The red line is the graph is drawn based up the effort remaining. As effort is spent on work items, the available amount of effort can be gauged from the graph.

Where else can this graph be found

This graph can also be accessed from “sprint analytics”, to access the burndown Graph from sprint analytics click the icon in your “sprint board” page.
