Impediment Escalation Framework

The Impediment Escalation Framework consists of the necessary steps for managing and reporting impediments. ​

For the purpose of this framework, an impediment is defined as an obstacle or disruption that hinder teams from executing their tasks and possibly jeopardizing achieving the Sprint goal. ​

An impediment could be related to technology, process, or people. If it’s blocking the team from completing work, it’s an impediment.
