Scrum: Jeff Sutherland on Going from Done to “Done-Done”

There can often be more than one in-house opinion on what constitutes “done” at the beginning of a Scrum project.

Jeff Sutherland says that achieving a universal definition of done is necessary for every project. Otherwise, a development team will potentially stake the completeness of a Scrum project on an idea that is rooted in miscommunication. And this isn’t just limited to code, says Sutherland — completeness needs to be a consideration at the feature level too. For more on this topic, watch the video from OpenView Labs.
