Definition of Story Agreement

An agreement between the Product Owner (Team Captain) and the rest of the Team that defines when a Story will be complete (or “Done”). The Story Agreement typically consists of the Acceptance Criteria, the Standard of Care, and (possibly) additional General Agreements. This is a synonym for “Done”.


Storyotypes and Storyotyping help the Scrum Team with Story Agreements, which helps with Planning and moving the Stories to the Front Burner to be worked on.
