Even if you use Scrum for the proper purpose—solving complex adaptive problems—your product quality is high, and the team is self-managing entirely, you might face a problem. If your Product Backlog is not actionable, your Scrum Team will likely perform at a mediocre level at best—thus too below its potential.

In this talk, Stefan Wolpers will address ten critical anti-patterns in Product Backlog management that both Scrum Masters and Product Owners should address immediately, once identified. We will learn:

– Why an actionable Product Backlog is essential for your Scrum Team’s success

– How to spot and remedy issues that prevent your Product Backlog from becoming actionable,

– How you can defend your Product Backlog from falling back into the “old ways.”

This session is relevant for all the attendees including who are new to the field.
