Example of a Sprint Backlog

Sprint Backlog: Ken Schwaber defines the Sprint Backlog as a list of tasks that defines a Team’s work for a Sprint. The list emerges during the Sprint. Each task identifies those responsible for doing the work and the estimated amount of work remaining on the task on any given day during the Sprint. The Sprint Backlog is generated when the Team selects a particular set of functionality listed in the Product Backlog to develop to shippable quality over the course of the Sprint.

Example of use:

  • · We need to hold a Sprint Planning Meeting in order to create a Sprint Backlog.”
  • · “Check the Sprint Backlog to see what tasks still need to be completed.”
