The sprint backlog is considered to be done when everything is done based on the definition of done. The meaning of the definition of done can differ depending on the Scrum team.

For example, the definition of done for another project will be different for another project. The tasks that need to be done will depend on what the team will decide on overall. If there are some tasks that are not yet done, then the sprint backlog will not be considered as done yet.

The best thing about having a scrum team is that even if the number of members can change. The things that the members are required to do will be split equally.

A sprint background is considered to be complete when people know that it has been done according to what is considered to be done based on the definition of done. Take note that a sprint background is something that a team must need to do in order to solve certain issues or problems that may be encountered when doing a project. There was a time when the scrum was only used for developing and solving some software problems. Over time, people have realized that this can be used in order to improve the other projects that are available.

When everything is done based on the Definition of Done. Sprint backlogs are tasks identified by the Scrum team. The tasks that are identified need to be completed during the Scrum sprint. The scrum team is the owners of the Sprint Backlog, and this backlog helps the team manage themselves while the Sprint is occurring. Scrum teams can vary from the number of members they have. They can have three to nine members. Regardless of how many members are on the team, the work of the team is split equally.

The correct answer to this question is When everything is done based on the Definition of Done. A sprint backlog is tasks that the Scrum team identifies. This list of tasks needs to be completed during the Scrum sprint. The scrum team owns the Sprint Backlog, and it allows the team to self-manage themselves during the Sprint.

The team can range from three to nine members, and their work is equally split. Scrum is a framework to manage knowledge work. Scrums are mainly associated with software developments, but over time, it has expanded to other fields and standard project teams.

How will you say that things are done when you are sure that there are still one or two things that have not been resolved just yet? To say that something is done means that it should be done completely and the next task can be done. In Definition of Done, the process is already done and the users who are trying it out can already start using it.

This means that the Software can be released and can actually be used. There are times when you think things are done because you have already placed all of the needed items but what if there are some things that you have forgotten? This means that things are not complete yet.

When everything is done based on the Definition of Done

When the item is complete based on the Definition of Done (which means that the end users can use it), and it creates an Increment of working software that is potentially releasable. Note: if all the tasks for an item are complete, it doesnt necessarily mean that the item is complete, because we might have forgotten to add some of the tasks to begin with.####
