Backlog Refinement Meeting

June 29, 2012 CollabNet VersionOne

This module covers the hidden fifth meeting that’s essential to success at Scrum and other Agile approaches. Subtopics include how to recognize well-formed Product Backlog Items (PBIs), a team effort estimation game, decomposition of large PBIs (e.g. “epics”) into smaller ones (e.g. “user stories”), acceptance criteria, definition of done, Product Backlog prioritization, and team self organization. The learner observes a simulated team and is prompted to help them as they face various challenges.
