Similar to the EPMO’s standard Project Process, the Scrum process has its own set of minimum deliverables. The EPMO created a one-stop Scrum Excel Workbook that contains tabs with all the Scrum templates described below, as well as lots of additional Scrum information. Check it out!
1. Scrum Team Information & Stakeholder Register: A list of the Scrum team members and stakeholders.
2. Product Backlog: Prioritized List of user stories (requirements) maintained by the Product Owner throughout the project.
3. Sprint Backlog: A list of the Product Backlog items that the team committed to do in the sprint. It shows tasks, assignments, and the status of work.
4. Burn Charts: A graphical representation of the work completed (burnup) and the work left to do (burndown). It is updated daily by the Scrum Master following the Daily Scrum. See Scrum Meetings for more information on the Daily Scrum.
5. Sprint Retrospective Log: The Scrum Master uses this template to track the results of the lessons learned at the end of each sprint (called the sprint retrospective).
6. Sprint Velocity Chart: A chart and graphical representation maintained by the Scrum Master that shows the story points committed and completed for each sprint.
7. Impediments Log (optional): The Scrum Master tracks impediments that need resolution. Impediments are issues and roadblocks that are impacting team progress.
8. Parking Lot (optional): The Scrum Team tracks items that need to be revisited at another time.
9. Budget: It is required that the project's budget is tracked, Use the Project Cost Workbook or another tracking template/tool.
