Definition of Ready (short: DoR) is a Scrum term. It is a list of criteria, which must be fulfilled by the respective product backlog items, i.e. by the individual elements of a product backlog, in order to be allowed to proceed to the next step, the “READY status”. When evaluating the individual product backlog items, the main issue is whether qualitative requirements can be met and whether the items are complete, but other points/criteria are also decisive. Only if the “READY status” is reached may a product be further processed in the so-called sprint.
