A chart that tracks the completion of a Sprint and offers metrics that help teams predict the amount of work that can be done.

When creating a campaign, feature, product, service or experience it is important to know how much a company, team or individual can sustainably perform in a period of time.

For teams that choose to perform work using Scrum or Agile Methodologies, they can calculate or measure their velocity and ability to do work using a graph known as a Burndown Chart.

This burndown chart can be used by clients, leadership, product owners, managers or team leads to asses a team's performance as well as to discuss performance during team retrospectives during the Sprint Retrospective scrum ceremony.

To learn more about Burndown Charts in JIRA or how to set them up, consult the guide below.
