Product Backlog Grooming
Discover reviewing and revising PBI, ordering, prioritizing, ongoing activity, max 10% of dev team
Product Backlog Grooming overview:
- Besides the time boxed event discussed before, there is also an ongoing activity in Scrum projects called Product Backlog grooming. It is the act of reviewing and revising Product Backlog items, which typically involves adding detail, estimates, and order to them.
- The Product Owner is responsible for ordering (prioritizing) the items and the Development Team is responsible for estimating those items.
- The main difference between this activity and the five Scrum events is that Scrum events are all time-boxed, but grooming is an ongoing activity that happens throughout the Sprint.
- This activity should not consume more than 10% of the time of the Development Team.
