Hello, today I’m talk about a Scrum board or a task board. This is a common
way for Scrum teams to measure progress throughout the duration of a
I’m going to create a very simple task board with just four columns. I’ll
start with a column for committed stories, a column for tasks not started,
a column for work in progress and finally a task completed column.
Let’s say, the very beginning of our script as part of script planning
meeting part one. The team commits to a certain number of user stories.
Let’s say, for example doing three user stories. We’ll put those three user
stories up here on the task board.
Then, as part of script planning meeting part two, we break each of those
user stories up into a number of different tasks. Let’s say, for example
the first user story is broken down into three tasks. The second user story
is broken up into two tasks. And the final user story is also broken down
into two tasks.
Let’s say we also have two team members on our team, Alice and Bob. On the
very first day of the sprint, Alice takes some work from the task not
started column and moves that into the work in progress column. Bob, he
will also take some work from the task not started column and also move
that into the work in progress column.
Next day comes around, Alice, she might have finished her work and so she
will move her task from the work in progress column to the task completed
column. And then she will take a new task from the not started column. Bob,
he might still be working on his task so it stays where it is.
The next day comes around, Alice has again, completed her work and so
she’ll move her task into the completed column. And then she’ll take a new
task from the not started column. Bob, let’s say he has also completed his
task. And so, he’ll similarly move his task into the competed column. And
he will take a new task from the not started column.
So, we can see there is a general migration of tasks from the left hand
side of the board to the right hand side of the board. You can tell, just
at a glance, how the team is progressing on a day by day basis by using by
using the Scrum board for tasks.
There are a variety of different styles of Scrum boards or task boards.
Let’s take a look at some of those.
