We need to first review the progress behind the chart

At the end of every week, we will track the amount of
We can track other process areas as we will scope over
them if we want to improve in those areas as well.
●Visualize your flow.
●Visualize the burn up chart. The burn up chart visualizes
the progress over signed contracts each week.
●Analyzing the burn up chart allow us conclude and change.
For example: as a marketing team member or manager what
flattened the chart? Was it a seasonal trend? Maybe we didn’t invest in the
What made it go up again?
Visualizing the process behind the results will lead us
towards better effectiveness and efficiency. We may ask, what do we need to
change so the graph will go up again?
●In fact, we can also compare our current status to our

There are many more ways we can use burn charts in
our day to day life , school , personal projects… but this is another blog
