Definition of Task:

A task is a single unit of work broken down from a user story. A task is usually completed by just one person.

Use of Tasks:

Tasks are used in Scrum to identify small increments of work to be completed during a sprint. The team writes the tasks on a card or post-it note and put it on their task board.

Benefits of Tasks:

  • Break user stories down into manageable units.
  • Empower team members to complete tasks without feeling overwhelmed.
  • Easy to identify on task boards.
