How many artifacts are in Scrum in total?



  • I have defined that 3 main artifacts of the Scrum are

    1. Product Backlog
    2. Sprint Backlog
    3. Product increment.

    Could there be more artifacts in Scrum such as "Definition of Done" or "Sprint Goal". Different topics contradict each other on this question.

    I there any universal source?



  • The Scrum Guide is the definitive guide of what artifacts are in Scrum: The Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog and Increment.

    It would certainly be possible to make a case for the "Definition of Done" or "Sprint Goal" being artifacts, but that is not stated explicitly in the Scrum Guide.

    As Scrum is a framework it leaves a lot of room for adaption. Hence you may see lots of different views and possibly even contradictions around what constitutes a Scrum artifact.

    It is also worth noting that the Scrum Guide itself is not set in stone. It is reviewed frequently and there have been many updates over the years.
