Better Features Through Backlog Grooming

  • Jul 17, 2013 · 5:30 PM

The concept of GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out) is universal, and nowhere is it more prevalent than in software. Yet, software provides a fertile environment for the concept of VIVO (Value In, Value Out) to thrive. In this session, we'll explore techniques to deliver value through better grooming of inputs.

Session Overview:
1. Definition of a strong story and acceptance criteria
2. Overview of backlog grooming & its role in Scrum
3. Hands on exercise to convert weak stories into strong ones via grooming session

    Great stuff! I learned a few new things, and the group exercise really helped to highlight areas that my team needs to work on at my day job.
