About this report
The value delivered report shows the daily sum of all estimated value points and the sum of tested value points for a specific sprint. Value points represent an increment of value for the company, such as revenue expectations, improved quality, or speed to market.
The report provides this information in the form of a line graph, depicting a time-series relationship while visually representing volume. Information is graphed on an X and Y axis, using data points connected by line segments. This report is beneficial to Scrum Masters, team leaders and members, and product owners to measure value point totals as stories progress to the Test Complete state during a sprint. It is beneficial to review the report with team members during sprint review meetings and daily standups. Executive management may also be interested in this report. This report is generated by selecting a specific PI and sprint.

How to interpret this report
Because value points usually equate to business value, such as selling more units or lowering production costs, most executive managers would rather learn that a sprint team delivered 40 value points, as opposed to 40 effort points or story points.
The goal of any sprint is to have as much value delivered by the end, which is desired before the sprint review. Scrum Masters and product owners should look for a steady cadence of value points moving to the Test Complete state during a sprint, as opposed to high volumes of value being delivered at the end of a sprint.
