The Backlog is Broken - Here's How We Can Fix It
Monday, May 8, 2023
The backlog is a beautiful, powerful, and delightfully simple tool for managing variability and uncertainty in modern agile organizations. Unfortunately, the backlog can also be a major impediment to flow and break the value stream with substantial economic loss. This happens because our traditional model of backlog management presents the backlog as a stack of plates reservoir for the development team.
Agile grew up, and now so does our model of the backlog. This tutorial introduces the Rock Crusher, a flow based model for backlog management.
Participants will explore the Rock Crusher and design their own implementation of the model for use in their own context.
