Definition of Done

Discover shared understanding of done, decided by Scrum Team, might have mulitiple DOD across different team of same project,

DOD description:

  • There should be a shared understanding of what it means for a piece of work to be Done.
  • This definition of Done must be discussed and agreed upon by the Scrum Team at the beginning of the project so that future Increments would be releasable.
  • When multiple Scrum Teams are working on a single project, it might not be possible to use the same definition of Done for all teams (might be working on items of different natures) so¬† each Scrum Team will define its own definition of Done and delivers its items based on that definition.
  • The integration of those definitions of Done should be capable of creating a potentially releasable Increment in the project level.
