Building Better Product Backlogs

This workshop-based training is a practical add-on to Agile Scrum Master or Product Owner courses and focuses on Story Mapping as a means to rapidly build and update Product Backlogs. 

At the core of Agile Scrum is defining and prioritizing requirements and building the Product Backlog – the definitive requirements list used in Scrum and Agile.

The Product Owner is responsible for creating and continually refining the Product Backlog, but they rely on the knowledge and understanding of the entire Scrum Team to get this right.

This course will show you how Scrum Teams can build the first Product Backlog in a few hours and the technique can be used whenever new requirements need to be added to the Product Backlog.

Who will benefit from this workshop?

Anyone who is involved in Scrum will benefit from the workshop although the primary candidates are users responsible for providing development requirements, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners.
