The Agile Sprint Backlog

A 59 Seconds Agile Article

This article provides an ‘Introduction in to ‘The Agile Sprint Backlog’ and looks to discuss the metrics used for measuring project progress.

Output of the Sprint Planning

After a successful sprint planning meeting, teams should have both a complete sprint backlog and a sprint burndown chart. The sprint backlog is the primary goal, since the team needs a list of stories to work on during the sprint. However, the sprint burndown chart is also valuable in the product development process.

A sprint burndown chart gives a visual representation of how much work remains in a sprint, as well as how much work the team has completed. The chart also contains a baseline that represents the average pace that a team would need to burn down, to finish all of the stories by the day the sprint ends. If the team’s actual hours are above this line, they are behind schedule. If the actual hours are instead below the line, they are ahead of schedule.

With these tools and processes, Scrum teams can use the sprint planning meeting to create an output of a valuable sprint backlog. This backlog then allows the team to focus on certain features and stories that will improve the product and deliver value to the stakeholders.

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. Next Mike gives an in depth discussion of who user stories are written for and where to begin when gathering the details for them. The book then discusses acceptance testing user stories, including how to go about specifying these criteria and the responsibilities of the development team and customers during this process.
