Scrum Artifacts

What are Scrum Artifacts?

Scrum artifacts are the tangible, visible elements that help teams track progress and manage their work. They provide a shared understanding of the project’s goals, objectives, and progress. The three main artifacts in Scrum are the product backlog, sprint backlog, and burndown chart.

Product Backlog

The product backlog is a list of all the tasks that need to be completed for a project. It includes user stories, features, bug fixes, and other tasks that need to be done. The product backlog is owned by the product owner and is constantly updated as new tasks are identified or priorities change.

Sprint Backlog

The sprint backlog is a subset of the product backlog that contains only the tasks that will be worked on during a particular sprint. It is created at the beginning of each sprint and is owned by the development team. The sprint backlog is used to track progress throughout the sprint and ensure that all tasks are completed on time.
