The Agile Dictionary

 

The Product Backlog grooming (also known as Backlog Refinement) consists in adding details, time estimates and prioritization order of the different items as well as decomposing large stories into smaller stories or tasks. All items are reviewed and revised. Prioritization is often done with the customer to order items by business value. This is an on-going process but Teams can also schedule meetings or ceremonies to allocate some time to focus on this.

Burn Down Charts are graphs that allow you to track the progress of the development of an agile product in terms of work left to do (Y axis) VS time (X axis), at the level of a sprint or of an entire project.

Point value are given to each task, representing units of work, the more complex and time-consuming the task is, the more units of work.

Burn Up Chart

Burn Up Charts are graphs that allow you to track the progress of the development of an agile product in terms of work done (1st curve), the work left to do (2nd curve) on a Y axis VS time (X axis), at the level of a sprint or of an entire project.

Point values are given to each task, representing units of work, the more complex and time-consuming the task is, the more units of work.

At the level of an entire project, this is a very dynamic graph as the Team will complete work at every sprint but work might also add up within time with new ideas and features being added to the product backlog.
