A Scrum team needs access to shared information in order to effectively perform its activities and Inspect the information.
Scrum Artifacts are designed to maximize transparency of key information. Thus, everyone inspecting them has the same basis for adaptation.
The three Scrum Artifacts represent work or value:
- Product Backlog
- Sprint Backlog
Each artifact contains a commitment to ensure it provides information that enhances transparency and focus against which progress can be measured.
