Limited Capacity seats available

There once was a myth that developers and testers should passively consume product backlog items created by the Product Owner. After all, the Product Owner is continually grooming the backlog.

Great product backlogs, just like great code-bases, and products, are created by the continual effort of many over a long period of time. In this session, we will look at real world strategies for working across role to look ahead and **actively prepare our user stories for upcoming iterations.**

We will review continual backlog refinement, based on various organizations situations, comparing large teams, small teams, simple domains, complex domains, etc. The session will start with a case study, move on to general knowledge sharing about readiness, and then we will have a hands-on workshop where you the attendees will **present and discuss alternative to address different organizational issues** (e.g. you will define what backlog refinement approach fits your situation).
