Burndown Chart

A burndown chart is a visual representation of the progress made in completing tasks or work items over time. It is commonly used in agile project management to track the remaining work versus time. The chart starts with a baseline representing the total work initially estimated. As work is completed, the chart shows a downward trend indicating the remaining work. This helps teams in understanding their progress and making necessary adjustments to meet their project goals. Imagine a race where the finish line is fixed, and the chart shows how much distance you have left to cover.
