What Is The Focus of Team Backlog Refinement

  • Look at the upcoming stories — these could come from:
  1. the program level (i.e. team’s part of a feature/enabler,
  2. team’s own context (i.e. refractors, maintenance, technical debt),
  3. other stakeholders (i.e. other teams’ dependencies, spikes, commitments).
  • Discuss … have conversations of each story … tip: try capping to 15 minutes per story… extend as necessary
  • Estimate… albeit at a high level estimation
  • Establish the initial understanding of the Acceptance Criteria per story
