      I'm really learning a lot from the discussion on burn-up charts, and thank
      Russ and Phil from the Silicone Valley Patters Group for originally raising
      the topic. I thought everyone might be interested in these comments from
      Jeff Sutherland.

      Comments on burn up chart.

      1. The SCRUM needs to control the backlog. Product marketing needs to
      be part of the SCRUM or a customer representative. There is ongoing
      negotiation to meet the data by adjusting backlog.

      2. The units on the chart are extremely important. You need to know
      the velocity. If you have 7 people on the team you want to see more
      than 7 units a day burning up.

      3. The burnup chart could be easily generated with the same data that
      generates the burndown chart.

      4. Daily update of the burnup or burndown chart is extremely useful
      and can be done easily with the right implementation of tracking.

      5. A burnup chart that meets the above criteria is a nice view of the
      data. It demonstrates the feature set required (with real units of
      time required) against the burnup of time. So it clearly shows where
      features are taken in or out of the SCRUM, which is critical to
      demonstrate to management.
