The burndown shows where we are in terms of scope and cost.
This graph can be exported directly from Visual Studio (look for the burndown icon in the top right corner). It’s important to make sure that the whole team keep their timesheets up to date, so that the information is accurate.
Ideally, you want the blue area to stay below the black line. Don’t worry if it zigzags up and down along the black line – as long as it doesn’t keep going up.
