Definition of Chore
A Story that provides value to the Team or Product, as opposed to an external Stakeholder; an Item whose value is other than Business Value. (Compare to Capability)
More specifically, Chores are things we do in order to enable our Team to do work, or to improve the code base so that it can be worked with more easily, and so on.
Here are some examples of Chores: ‘Improve the build script to incorporate module ABC,’ ‘Re-arrange the Team room so that the testers and coders are sitting together’.
