Scrum Burndown Chart Hack

Hours Burndown Chart

Hours Burndown

Recently a team asked about a visual indicator to show the projection of their work for their hours and points burndown charts during the sprint.  When indicating that a piece of string would work, it dawned on me that we have pipe cleaners in our Facilitator Toolkits.  Turns out they are the perfect size for an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper and easily wrap around push pins used on the board for a burndown chart.  Plus they come in some really fantastic colors.
