Backlog / Story Grooming

Jan 9, 2019 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Have you or your Agile teams had trouble refining requirements on an Agile project? Are your teams struggling with user stories and tasks that are too large for them to handle well? If so, you and your teams need more guidance to implement backlog / user story grooming. Backlog grooming is a step-by-step process of taking high-level (“coarse-grained”) requirements and refining them to lower-level user stories and tasks (“fine-level”) that are ready to put into a sprint. In RefineM’s Backlog/Story Grooming presentation, attendees will learn how to work the process to achieve fine-grained requirements that are ready just in time. The key to success is leveraging tools and techniques as well as the expertise of your team to refine requirements iteratively.

Drunken PM

by Dave Prior

Drunken Boxing for Project Managers “The main feature of the drunkard boxing is to hide combative hits in drunkard-like, unsteady movements and actions so as to confuse the opponent. The secret of this style of boxing is maintaining a clear mind while giving a drunken appearance.” Yeah... just like that… but with network diagrams and burndown charts… and a wee bit less vodka.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.

Enterprise Digital Agility: An Absolute Transformation

by Gaurav Dhooper

The role of enterprise agility is very important as it brings the ability to adapt easily to the change introduced—and then sustain it.

Agility in Project Management

by Susan Irwin, PhD, MBA, PMI-ACP, PMI-SP, PMP, PfMP

Project managers need leadership skills—specifically emotional intelligence (EI)—to augment technical expertise. But agile thinking, leadership and EI skills are just one facet of project success. Businesses need to invest in project management processes that are agile to respond to the changing needs of the organization.

How to Integrate Time Zones for Successful Collaboration

by Mark Kilby

Many managers of distributed agile software teams struggle with time zones. Team members may also struggle with maintaining a traditional eight-hour workday when separated by multiple time zones.

The Silent Killer in Your Agile Implementation

by Gil Broza

The longer it takes to do anything, the longer the variance of task duration. When that happens, motivation and engagement decrease, and collaboration becomes harder to maintain. These effects build on each other in a vicious cycle. This is why technical agility matters.

Balance 'Weighted Shortest Job First'

by Bart Gerardi

Weighted Shortest Job First is a widely used technique that can give guidance to the product owner as to how to prioritize the backlog in a rational way, supported by solid data. But if it is the only process used, it can lead to a mediocre priority list.

Customers Still Don’t Know What They Want

by Andy Jordan

One of the common complaints about traditional project management methods is that they collide with customers who don’t know what they want or keep changing their minds. Agile approaches can help, but you still have to manage the customer — and the requirements!

The Transition to Agile and Scrum Within a Company

by Suzie Dang

What Is Emotional Intelligence?

by Amy Whicker

Our emotional intelligence gives us the confidence needed to trust and respect our emotional responses. Trusting and respecting emotions requires us to view all emotions as valid—while giving us the freedom to analyze if that valid emotion is truly applicable to our current situation. So, what can we do to trust and respect emotions?
