Week 5: Backlog Is Your Buddy


With the production phase and handoffs between design and development starting to come into focus, the backlog was created on the project room window for the team to keep a eye on upcoming tasks.

The backlog is shaped like a funnel, angling the pipeline in the following way:

Widest: Future (beyond 4 weeks)
Milestone: Approximately the upcoming 3-4 weeks
Sprint: Imminent items to go on the scrum board

Individual Tasks: recorded on regular size stickies
Clusters: recorded on 3X5 stickies, representing a group of tasks or a sprint

The backlog is an essential tool for Botify to keep its eyes on the prize! Roll on production!
