      Hello Scrum Users,


      I was at the Silicone Valley User’s Group meeting last week and after the meeting a discussion occurred around burn-down charts.  The group has a problem with the Scrum charts because they trend down rather than up (perceived by developers as negative), and more particularly, because they measure two things at once:  both the team’s velocity and the change in the backlog.  If the team has little control over the backlog, the thought is that they would prefer to see the two charted separately, and as a burn-UP chart.  Below is one possible example (hopefully you can see this chart):



      What do Scrum users think about this?
