Tired of those empty discussions about what constitutes “done”? Try this needs-based definition:
- Done (adj) /dʌn/
- Someone’s need was met.
For background, see these blog posts:
- On “done”: A good working definition of “Done”
- On “needs”: Better user stories start with authentic situations of need
The concept of the authentic situations of need is introduced in chapter 3 of the Agendashift book.
