Hi there! 

In a previous study exploring the scientific literature, we identified the state-of-the-art on the Scrum practice "Definition of Done" in agile projects. We discovered that companies use different levels of done. For instance, some companies use only 1 (e.g., release); others use 3 (e.g., story, sprint and release). The most popular types of criteria are related to software verification and validation and regulatory compliances.

You can read the complete paper by following this link:

Our goal is to complement our discoveries by exploring the state-of-the-practice. Therefore, I invite you to answer a questionnaire about the usage of the Scrum practice "Definition of Done" in agile projects. 

If you have already used this practice, here is the link of the questionnaire:

If you have never used this practice, please answer the following question: "Why haven't you used it?".
