The progress of the team is tracked using a burndown chart, one of the best project visibility tools, and visually represents a project’s progress. The burndown chart provides a day-by-day measure of the work that remains in a given sprint or release.


The slope of the graph, or burndown velocity, is calculated by comparing the number of hours worked to the original project estimation and shows the average rate of productivity for each day.


Knowing whether or not the project is on time, early, or running behind can help teams make adjustments that will get everything back on-track.
