Impediment Work Item

An impediment represents a work stoppage or blockage within a sprint. This is a key concept of the scrum methodology because identifying impediments affords the individual contributor to continue working while the scrum master (or another identified individual) can work on removing the impediment. The purpose of tracking impediments as work items is to allow additional support for scheduling and resource management. Most projects may not want to track this level of detail, which is fine. Our suggestion is to not track impediments unless you feel its resolution will consume a considerable amount of time.
