The last missing artifact of the scrum framework.
Is this the sprint commitment? No, we already saw the commitment is the Sprint Goal.
Is this the vision? Not really, but it’s a step towards that.
The Increment is all the items that the team has completed in the sprint. All items where the work is “DONE” are considered an Increment of that sprint.
The Increment is a step closer to achieving the vision of the product owner. It must be releasable and testable. Usable and meet what the team calls, the definition of done (more about it tomorrow)
In one sentence. The sum of all DONE work in the sprint that is usable, testable and releasable.
