  25. 25. Scrum What they mean? User story It captures the 'who', 'what' and 'why' of a requirement in a simple, concise way, often limited in detail by what can be hand-written on a small paper note. E.g. As a sales manager, I want to search for my customers by their first and last names so I can communicate with them with ease. Velocity The total effort a team is capable of in a sprint. The number is derived by evaluating the story points completed from the last few sprint's stories/features. This is a guideline for the team and assists them in understanding how many stories they can do in a future sprint. Daily Scrum Each day during the sprint, a project team communication meeting occurs at the same location and same time every day for 15mins. Sprint planning meeting It is held at the beginning of the sprint cycle where team selects what work is to be done, Prepare the time-bound Sprint Backlog, Identify and communicate how much of the work is likely to be done during the current sprint. Burn down The sprint burn down chart is a publicly displayed chart showing pending work in the sprint backlog. It is updated every day. It gives a simple view of the sprint progress. It also provides quick visualizations for reference. Scrum Master The person responsible for the Scrum process, making sure it is used correctly and maximizing its benefits. He is not a member Scrum team(s). Product Owner The person responsible for maintaining the Product Backlog by representing the interests of the stakeholders, and ensuring the work done by Development Team adds value to end Product.
