Checklist allows defining recurring tasks on a per stage or sprint basis. With checklists, you can share with your team a structured checklist of things to be done and reinforce consistent methods.
Often you find that if you don't have any guidance, you may forget certain steps in a process. Sometimes, even with simple steps involved, you can get distracted and forget one or more of the required procedures. A simple feature that helps to prevent these mistakes is the checklist. Here are some of the benefits of using checklists:
- It helps the project members stay more organized, assuring them they will not skip any important step in the process.
- It motivates your team to take action and complete tasks. Small wins and the goal-gradient effect encourage you to reach your goals.
- Checklists help you move quickly, be more efficient, and save time. This in turn allows you to focus on accomplishing different activities.
Using checklist ensures that you won’t forget anything. So, if you do something again and again in each Stage or Sprint, and want to do it right every time, use checklists.
