Is requirement ready?

Do your team often face to incomplete requirements which block them in development? Do you need as a product owner to know if requirement details can be understood and detailed enough for your team so you can take them to the sprint planning session?

Agile teams have definition of ready in place available for product owners so they can check qualitative attributes of the requirements in advance.

Experienced agile teams often even do the sprint pre-planning during which they try to recognize incomplete requirements so product owner can improve them before the next sprint planning.

ScrumDesk in v.4.16.3 enables to mark backlog item as ready by team members. Once the story is ready, you will see a small green check mark on a story card.

Start - Is Story Ready in Story map

To mark the card as ready, click the check mark on a card, or in the side view of selected backlog item.
