The gathering of requirements is an essential task for every Agile team. Yes, the Scrum framework makes it clear that only the Product Owner owns this task and is responsible for it. The reality is that the gathering and and grooming of requirements is a complex task that must be executed in groups to be done well.
The gathering of requirements and the preparation needed to make these requirements READY for Sprint Planning is a very common 'pain point' for Agile teams just starting out. Experienced teams also face real difficulty when the organization is not ready to execute on the deep level of collaboration needed to get the job done.
Attend this session to get your head around gathering and grooming your Product Backlog. We'll show you 4 specific sense-making tools that can help your team gather requirements at he rate of one per minute. We'll show you how to groom those same requirements at about one minute per. Since the average Product Backlog has over 200 requirements coded as user stories, you have some work to do. We show you how.
