Learning At Improving

Creating and Refining the Product Backlog

This event has passed


The Product Backlog is an essential artifact on agile projects, and very little guidance can be found on how to create a useful one.  How do you get started?  What's needed to create one?  What should it contain? What shouldn't it contain?  What's the difference between a user story and a PBI?  How are metrics used with it?  How and when do you refine it?   All these questions and more will be answered in this session.
