Definition of Done


In Scrum each iteration - or Sprint - should yield a valuable product increment of release quality. An understanding of what makes an increment truly releasable - and therefore genuinely “Done” - provides transparency over the work a Development Team plans to do, and the tasks it brings into progress. The tyranny of work which is nearly done, but not really done, can put a team in servitude to technical debt. Team members are obliged to repay the “deficit for release” at compounding rates of interest, as it becomes harder and harder with each Sprint to bring that delinquent, half-finished work into a usable and releasable state.
