Avega Elevate: Ellen Gottesdiener - Product Backlog Refinement
Product Backlog Refinement With Structured Conversation
Learn to effectively & efficiently explore, evaluate, and confirm a shared understanding of refined backlog items so they are ready for implementation.
Product backlog refinement is crucial to smooth follow, strong team collaboration and healthy product development. Refinement, the ongoing work by the product manager or owner in collaboration with the development team, prepares backlog items for implementation. Yet, it can be one of the most challenging and trouble-prone aspects of agile product development.
This Elevate event shares a common sense and tested approach for defining and refining backlog item—regardless of how you represent them in your product backlog— so they are “ready” to get to “done”.
In this interactive event, you:
Learn how refining backlog items using Structured Conversations with the 7 Product Dimensions enables you to slice backlog items while deeply enhancing the teams’ domain knowledge
Participate in an exercise to deepen your understanding of each of the product dimensions and crucial questions they surface
See how backlog refinement, when using strong facilitation and visual models, builds shared understanding and strengths team collaboration
This interactive session provides you with practical tools you can use for backlog refinement. You leave with a new perspective of backlog items that enlightens and enlivens your refinement conversations.
