One of the questions in Scrum is What impediments have you encountered? But what exactly is an impediment? Can you give me an example?


You are referring to the third question in a Daily Scrum meeting:

Do I see any impediment that prevents me or the Development Team from meeting the Sprint Goal?

This meeting is all about synchronizing the team's work towards reaching the Sprint Goal. Think about it: The Team works together to reach the goal. An impediment is anything that could prevent the Team from reaching the goal, and it is very important to identify those early, and take actions if necessary.


Somethat that prevents you from doing the a task that you should be working on. Some examples: Broken computer. Don't have the (x) from (y) that I need.
