What is a Burnup Chart?

The burnup chart is a simple graph that shows the total amount of work remaining in a sprint (or release, or project), and how much has been completed. It is drawn from the team’s perspective, showing how much work they believe remains to be done, and how much they have completed.

An ideal Burnup Chart should provide an accurate and realistic measurement of what remains to be done at a point in time.

Tracking the progress of the team is one of the key indicators of agile management. A good agile manager knows not only how to track progress, but also when and how to communicate it.

Why is a Burnup Chart important?

The purpose of a burnup chart is to track how much work the team has done in the past and how much they are likely able to do at any given time. As such, it's important for new teams just starting out on a project because that data can be used later when setting release schedules. Burnup Charts allow you to measure progress directly in terms of effort remaining vs total effort needed, so that your speed is constantly visible. Once you have some data points over time in your chart, it will be easier to foresee when to push for more development and when you should start preparing a release based on what has been accomplished so far.

How Burnup Chart works?

The burnup chart is a graphical representation in which the data is plotted on an axis that spans from 0 to 100% denoting the progress on the project. The height of each column represents how much work you have left to do, while its length indicates how long it will take you to accomplish it in the current environment.

How to use this Burnup Chart?

Use this chart with the Scrum Master or Product Owner to track team velocity and predict if new items are on track during the sprint.

  • 1. Generate your Burnup Chart using the tool above using your sprint dates
  • 2. Print your chart and place it on a location visible to everyone on the team
  • 3. As the sprint happens, update your burnup chart daily with the remaining points for the sprint
  • 4. As the days passes by, you will have a good idea on how the team productivity is going

What's valuable about Burnup Charts?

Burnup charts are a valuable tool for tracking progress and predicting outcomes, but with so much information, it can sometimes be difficult to work out which details are important.
