Definition of Ready


What is the definition of ready in the scrum agile framework?


Definition of ready

In the scrum agile framework, the definition of ready (DoR) marks the completeness of preliminary actions for a task or project to be processed.

Defining the definition of ready

The DoR, as opposed to the definition of done, can be revisited and modified. It is recommended to consult the team that is responsible for the specific execution to define the DoR. Essentially a task is ready when the team agrees it can be done. This is a core principle of the scrum agile framework.
