Course Description

Explore effective product backlogs using Scrum, an Agile framework for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products in this 11-video course. You will examine the backlog, a prioritized list of features that will be implemented as part of product development, a decision-making artifact that helps to estimate, refine, and prioritize product needs in the future. Begin by learning how to use the product backlog to collect user stories, and guide sprint planning. You will learn to align stakeholders and teams, so that teams implement the most valuable user stories. Nest, learners will examine responsibilities of the product owner and team members for product backlogs. You will learn best practices and methods for creating, fine-tuning, and communicating product backlogs. You will learn who is responsible for the backlog, and common categories used in product backlogs. You will learn several methods for refining product backlogs, including minimum viable product, 80/20, and the YAGNI principle (You aren't gonna need it). Finally, this course examines guidelines for release planning, and strategies for incremental delivery of product backlogs.
