In scrum, an increment refers to the shippable product increment developed during the sprint. Increments are driven by definition of done.
- Each increment is additive to the previous increments
- In order to deliver value, the increment must be usable (shippable)
- A sprint may produce multiple increments
- The moment a product backlog item meets the ‘definition of done’ an increment is born.
- An increment may be delivered to client even before the completion of the sprint
