Prioritizing the Product Backlog

A 59 Seconds Agile Article

Prioritizing the Product Backlog: Product Benefits

Adapting the way you approach the product development process could lead to massive benefits. One of the most important aspects of preparing for that development is to have a solid idea of what needs to be done at any given point in the process.

The simplest way to keep track of these tasks is by using a collective team to-do list. However, as we explored in the earlier example, throwing everything that needs to be done in one massive list leads to lots of wasted time, money, and effort.

You need some way to organize that to-do list so that it still represents the entirety of the project but presents a more focused approach to the development. This is where the product backlog comes in.

User Stories Applied

A 59 Seconds Agile Book Review

User Stories Applied by Mike Cohn is one of our favourite books on Agile User Stories. The book starts with an overview into user stories, and details what a user story is and the different aspects of them. He then discusses how to go about writing a user story, and provides details of the INVEST criteria that can be used to determine if the story is meeting all of its objectives.
