6 June 12, 2012 Application Development Center (ADC) 5 Story format: As a I can So that Feature/Epic/Story decomposition provides a foundation for elaboration at the right time Relevance to scope and business value can be checked throughout the process Ready backlog for about two iterations creates enough cushion to handle changes A regular cadence for prioritization & estimation occurs within each iteration Grooming the backlog happens every day – adds & deletes welcome Backlog Creation & Management Application Development Center (ADC) 5 Photo Credit: Bruce Fingerhood Caboose SP caboose, Oakridge OR. 9aUjKE-78bfJF-bhFUTv-9uRiju-gTqRS-e8aEo-hAujA5-69yJK1-dQpKkM-9ZHHS-arCNp-dm2izk-5Caj3-78iiEq- aG4kaR-6kpQG9

7 June 12, 2012 Application Development Center (ADC) 6 Cross-discipline discussion is the norm - stories cannot be considered ready for development without conversation Business sign off happens before testing and development can begin A common understanding of scope ensures value delivery for the business & the user Ambiguity is removed through conversation not narrative - more words does not equal better understanding Trust your team mates and put your ego aside Be here now!
