It is important for all team members to burn down the remainingwork to do so that the team has transparency into their progress.The Sprint burndown will display the actual remaining work todo andcompare it to an ideal line to show progress. In this case, the last data pointis below the ideal line, which indicates that the team is ahead of schedule tocomplete all of the work for this Sprint.

Having said that, what information is helpful for a SM to be able toidentify potential issues?The Sprint Dashboard offers several points of interest that help in putting together a betterpicture of what is happening. We’ve covered the Burndown, so now lets look at the Trend-Total Detailed Estimate:

This report shows the total detailed estimate compared to thetotal capacity, which lets the team know immediately if they are overallocated.
