  6. cba2015 Richard Kasperowski @rkasper skype:rkasperowski Google Hangout: kasperowski +1 617

    466 9754 r@kasperowski.com Definition of “Done”: What is “done” to you? • When you say your software is “done”, what do you mean? • To respond: • Write a short list of what “done” means for you. (solo, 2 minutes) • Share your thoughts one of these ways: • Unmute your mic (and, optionally, enable your camera) and share a few items verbally. • Type your responses into the chat window Image: http://www.chicagonow.com/cubicle-dad/2011/09/letting-toxic-people-and-negative-thinking-affect-me-it-stops-now-its-done/

    466 9754 r@kasperowski.com Definition of “Done”: What is “done” to you? • When you say your software is “done”, what do you mean? • Responses • PS (Nallasamy Ponnusamy): Done: Developed, tested and ready for production roll out • Kamran Zameer: Done means product owner accept the work that development is claiming that it is completed. • Greg Gerrein: Done: Product owner acceptance • Yetish Narayana: Done : Code developed, Unit tested and QA tested • Tomasz Skiba: - Working code - Unit and acceptance testing done- Approval for release • PS (Nallasamy Ponnusamy): • Justin Sanford: Done to me requires that all P1 goals are functioning as designed, all tests pass for the functionality covered by those goals, and no P1 bugs open • Jeffry Pincus: Done: required functionality and no known bugs. • Cornell Wright: Code is tested and ready for the user • Antonio Recalde: Done:- Done enough for deployment. If it is an incremental type of project, it is never really done as there can always be improvements, or new features.If it is a one time thing.. e.g... install software, it is done when the requirements are met. • Cyril (Tony) Allen: Done means the code is written, tested, and ready for commit/deployment. • Matt Kubej: Meets acceptance criteria, QA tested, Unit tested, No known defects • Frederick 2: Done: Developed, unit tested, qa tested, documented, accepted by stakeholders, published • Philip: The software has met the owner’s requirement per the RFP or agreement.

    466 9754 r@kasperowski.com Definition of “Done” • Everyone must understand and agree on what “Done” means • Unique to each Scrum Team • If the org has “done” conventions/ standards/guidelines, the org’s Def of Done is the Scrum Team’s minimum Def of Done • Used to assess when work is complete on the product increment • More stringent as Scrum Team matures Source: The Scrum Guide 2013 Image source: http://www.signingtime.com/whats-the-sign-for-all-done/

    466 9754 r@kasperowski.com Definition of “Done”: concrete practice • Define “done” for your HW2-3 mob • Try: Start with the sentence, “We’ll agree we’re done when:” and create a checklist of done-ness criteria • Try: Start with the “done” ideas that you already wrote down • Try: Use Decider Protocol to quickly agree on each proposed item • 5-10 minutes, then share with whole group
