Overview of this book

Agile methodologies like Scrum focus on customer values in an incremental way. Regular planning, tracking, reporting, and improving can become equally challenging from a project management perspective. GreenHopper is a tooling support for JIRA that offers easy adoption of agile practices through rich interfaces for effective team collaboration and project management. Agile Project Management with GreenHopper 6 Blueprints is a step-by-step guide that teaches you how to manage agile projects using the GreenHopper tooling system. With easy adoption using pre-sets for Scrum & Kanban, the rich interface focuses on the work at hand, increasing team productivity. Executing sprints, tracking sprints, and reporting on agile projects has never been so easy. The integration with different development environments helps teams to focus on collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. This book covers agile project management concepts using GreenHopper. You will learn about backlog management for your agile team, how to create projects and boards for your agile team, and how to create new backlog items, prioritize items, estimate backlog items, create sprints, and update technical task status and report on the same. You will learn everything you need to know about managing an agile project using GreenHopper and how to achieve the best value for your team.

Burndown chart

The Burndown chart is a graphical representation of work left over a period of time for a particular Sprint. The y axis in the chart contains the work left in team measurement units which can vary from team to team, and the x axis is the time in days. The following screenshot shows you a Burndown chart sample:

The y axis represents the measurement units of work which can be Story points, business value, or hours. The x axis in the chart represents the Sprint timeline in days.

During the start of the Sprint, all the work is in the "to do" state. As the Sprint progresses, the tasks are completed and the work remaining decreases over time. The Ideal graph is a guideline representing the ideal burn over time. The Actual graph represents the work burn over time by the team.
