YDS: What is the Definition of Ready in Scrum?

March 4, 2021

On today’s episode of YOUR DAILY SCRUM: What is the Definition of Ready in Scrum? Today's question asks us to take a look at how to know when a Product Backlog Item is "ready". Some teams use a Definition of Ready, however, this is a complementary practice, not an official part of Scrum. Check out the video for Todd and Ryan's take on this practice and whether or not a definition of ready is helpful to a Scrum Team. Do you use a definition of ready? Does it help? Let us know in the comments!

Ryan Ripley and Todd Miller are the author of Fixing Your Scrum: Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems. They are the co-founders of Agile for Humans, the premiere Scrum and Kanban training organization.
