A Product (or Project or Release) Burndown Chart provides the view of progress and gives visibility to the trend of completing the project. The values plotted in this chart reflect the Total Open Estimate on each plotted date. Burndown chart’s make it impossible to lie, and they pose the question — when are we going to finish?
With a career in Information Technology that has officially reached drinking age, I have one too many hats in roles from Systems Analyst to Programmer to IT Manager to Programmer to Director. I am a seeker of new ideas and learning new things. My passion has been working with product delivery teams to develop into their own identity and simply build valuable solutions by making great software. I have been applying Lean Agile ideas for a long time and leveraging their underlying practices with both a pragmatic and experimental purpose. At the end of the day, I believe in integrity, hard work, trial-and-error, people, and faith.
