Backlog/Story Grooming on ProjectManagement.com
When: January 9, 2019, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM Central time
A membership with ProjectManagement.com or PMI is required to register for this webinar.
Description: 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. Backlog grooming is typically a product owner rule that requires skill in prioritizing requirements and breaking down requirements with the help of the customer and development team.
In this webinar, hosted on ProjectManagement.com, 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.
Who Should Attend: This webinar is targeted toward managers and project team members who want to begin incorporating Agile practices. Attendees will learn how to adapt backlog / user story practices in their own environments. They will leave with the knowledge and skills to begin successful backlog grooming.
Webinar Delivery: This webinar will be delivered on Wednesday, January 9 from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM Central time on ProjectManagement.com.
