Scrum’s artifacts are listed in the 2020 Scrum Guide. They represent the work the team does and the business value of the product.
Each artifact contains a commitment with enough information that the commitment can be measured. The commitments are:
- For the Product Backlog, it is the Product Goal.
- For the Sprint Backlog, it is the Sprint Goal.
- For the Increment, it is the Definition of Done.
These commitments reinforce the philosophy that agile goals develop from team experience and history.
