The Agile Management Definition of Done

In an agile project, a requirement that meets the scrum team's (and the agile) definition of done is: complete and ready to demonstrate at the end of a sprint. The definition of done drastically changes the risk factor for agile projects. By creating a product that meets the definition of done in every sprint, you end each sprint with a usable, working product. Even if outside factors cause a project to end early, project stakeholders still see some value and have a working product to use now and build upon later. The product owner and the development team agree upon the details of the definition, which covers four elements:

1

Developed.

The development team must fully create the working product requirement.

2

Tested.

The development team must have tested that the product works correctly and is bug-free.

3

Integrated.

The development team must have ensured that the requirement works in conjunction with the whole product and any related systems.

4

Documented.

The development team must have created notes about how it created the product.
