One of key definitions of the Scrum framework is “Definition of Done”(DoD). In order to be able to decide when an activity from the Sprint Backlog is completed, the Definition of Done (DoD) is used. This bring all the team members to the same level of understanding about the conditions when a task is completed. The definition of done for our team is as follows:
Any issue in the Sprint Backlog is considered to be “Done” if the analysis, development and validation stages have been completed successfully and the acceptance criteria has been met. The deployment is not a prerequisite for the issue to be considered as “Done”.
