What is the Definition of Ready in the Scrum Framework?

The Definition of Ready (DOR)  in the Scrum framework refers to the actionable task that has been successfully completed and a significant amount of work has been put into it. 

In contrast with the Definition of Done (DOD), the Definition of Ready is a perspective in which a task can be directly taken up for a sprint without any further clarifications or revisions. It can be revisited and modified too. On the other hand, the Definition of Done is the task that has been completed and is ready to be located in production. Thus, there are lesser modifications done at this stage. 

The criteria of the Definition of Ready needs to be met in order for the task to be picked up for work-in-progress by a sprint.
