Product Backlog Refinement with Structured Conversations

Useful techniques for Product Backlog Refinement.

One of the most challenging and trouble-prone aspects of agile product development is discovering the right product requirements to deliver at the right time, for the right customer, and refining them for delivery. Join EBG’s Ellen Gottesdiener in this fast-paced introduction of a common sense, tested approach for defining and refining user stories—or any other method you use to represent backlog items.

You will learn how refining backlog items using Structured Conversations with the 7 Product Dimensions enables you to slice (a.k.a. split) backlog items while deeply enhancing teams’ domain knowledge. You will identify its usefulness for initial, multi-team, and single team product backlog refinement. And you will learn a straightforward analysis technique to help detect product dependenceis. Join us to see how Structured Conversations in facilitated sessions enables you to efficiently explore, evaluate, and confirm shared understanding of refined backlog items so they are ready for implemention.
