Downloads 04 - Template 04 - A Flexible Agile Burnup Chart

By |Saturday, June 25th, 2016|Categories: Downloads|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |7 Comments

Download the template - Template 04 - Agile Burnup Chart Template v1.2

When I posted the Burndown template, I promised that next template would be Burnup template. Unlike Burndown which shows remaining effort (stories etc.) to reach the goal, Burnup chart shows the effort spent (stories etc.) to reach the goal.

Both have their own pros and cons and both have their own utilities. In my view, in Agile Project Management, both should be used while staying away from trying to prove the superiority of one over the other.

In this template, I am not constraining the look and feel to only one type of Burnup Chart rather I am giving 4 different looks and feels. You can use which one do you want to use.
