January Meeting: Cultivating Agile Requirements

In an Agile environment, maintaining an ever-changing backlog of requirements can be intimidating, exhausting, and overwhelming. Without a sustainable process to cultivate the backlog, the Agile team can struggle to deliver value to its customers.

In this session, we will:

  1. Talk about changes that happen to the backlog and why those changes are important
  2. Identify common stages in the maturity of backlog items
  3. Discuss why “when” the team does various backlog preparation activities is very importantWalk through three steps you can use to define a backlog maturity process in your environment
    • Determine your goal state
    • Identify questions for your backlog items
    • Name and define maturity stages
  4. Propose techniques to make your stages of maturity visible

Come discover how to create an adaptable process to handle constant backlog change and provide valuable information at the right time for your team and stakeholders.
